So Long Dr. Sloan - I Will Miss You!

Just a quick post to salute Dr. James C. Sloan, formerly with the Oak Ridge Urologist Associates, Oak Ridge, Tennessee.  

Dr. Sloan leaves me and a host of other patients that have grown to see his presence as a comfort.  Just knowing he was our doctor meant that we were in good hands should anything happen or reoccur.  
He is going back to his hometown in Indiana, to build another following of satisfied urology and cancer patients.  God bless him and his family, please send us another great doctor!

Dr. Sloan graduated from the Vanderbilt School of Medicine in 1997. He completed his general surgery and urology post graduate training from Indiana University School of Medicine in 2003. 

In my opinion, he was the best, but I may be prejudice...he saved my life!

It's been two years since he operated on my left kidney, removing a malignant neoplasm (cancer).  Today was the anniversary, and I am still cancer free.

His confident manner and smile really meant a lot to someone that thought that the future held little hope.  You grow up hearing the word cancer, and learning to fear it.  Dr. Sloan gave me hope and confidence to face it, with just his smile!

Of course, the road after surgery wasn't all roses, as I have blogged about in the past, but now I can say I have the hope and health I need to continue my life.

Thanks Dr. Sloan!

Well, in all-honesty: Indiana ain't that far away from you, "as the crow-flies".

A chartered Twin-Beech could have you within-range before you could say "Jack-Abbott"!☺

Hell, if I could afford it? I'd do it!

He took good care of you. Hope you never need another.
