Our family chose MD Anderson Cancer Center after researching the best cancer centers in the USA. We went for a consult right before Hurricane Harvey hit. We flew out on one of the last commercial flig...hts to leave Houston. Our surgery was scheduled for the first Tuesday in Sept.
MD Anderson posted updates on FB throughout the flood week about the status of their institution. We were able to contact staff the Friday before we were to fly back to Houston. We made our previously scheduled appointments, including surgery, despite Harvey devastating a lot of Houston and affecting many MD Anderson's staff's lives. Every MD Anderson staff person, from the Chief Surgeon to the hospital cleaning crew, was absolutely kind and caring while showing professionalism and knowledge about our diagnosis and treatment.
We are forever grateful to MD Anderson.

I have been a patient at MDA since 1997. I cannot say enough great things about this cancer center. The doctors, staff and everyone there is there to take care of you and keep you alive without I am so grateful that I am still able to go there to see my doctors and well enough to walk out the door to my family at home. Myself and my 44 year old daughter are both stage 4 cancer and wouldn't even consider going to another cancer center than the best and that is MDA! See More

To be such a top notch place to go and get cancer treatments and all the bloodwork and scans that goes with this treatment they sure don't care about your time...when you have to drive hours or spend ...a great deal of money on hotels just to come here and then spend money on treatments also for appointment at 8:45 and you are still waiting at 10:30 and just an fyi...was checked in at 8:00... no food or drink mind you either and appointments started at 7:00... but they say they are not running behind...and this is every time we come here...not happy with the way things are run here... our time is important as considerate to our time as we are to yours...

I was so disappointed when I visited md Anderson with my father on his visit. I had expectations of this place being the gold standard of care and what I found was this not that. It is first a teachin...g hospital, second a for profit hospital, and third a market for experimental drugs. The teaching hospital means doctors oversee all kinds of students therefore they have a lot of responsibilities that take away from patient care. Second for profit means quality of care is the lowest because whatever is cheap is used not whatever is best. And finally when big pharma has a hand in any patient care, quality suffers because that is not their concern, getting drugs approved and selling them is what they are after.
I would recommend any other facility for treatment including cancer treatment center.

MD Anderson is the most wonderful place to work. To be an employee of MD Anderson is a gift from God.

Helping very ill patients is a blessing, the gift of compassion is the best gift and blessing t...hat God has ever given me.

My 15 years of service has made me appreciate getting up in the mornings, because it is a new day to help someone that cannot help themselves.

My life is Blessed thanks be to God for counting worthy to be his helper, all the Glory to God.....

My question for this place is when my son was diagnosed with stage 4 synovial sarcoma, Dr. Araujo was great to us, this is not what this is about. When my sons insurance lapsed we were told we needed ...15,000 up front to be seen. This disgusted me as many donations you people are getting and this is what you say. Shame on you!!! My donations now will definitely go to St Jude’s all the time. See More

Worst place to work ever. MD Anderson cancer center is a for profit organization that doesn't care for patient's. Patients are often mistreated given terrible care from nursing staff but also provid...ed wrong medication's if they aren't turned away for financial reasons. MD Anderson is not the place you want to go if you're looking for a fun place to work and it's the last place you want to go if you have cancer! Ben Taub is a better facility with better care than MD Anderson See More

My family and I were so blessed by the care we all received when I had to go for treatment. Not only, did the staff give me excellent care, they also, knew my family needed care as my husband, and chi...ldren were walking through with me on my journey of healing. I continue to receive amazing care every year I return for my checkup. The staff, always, goes above and beyond especially Dr. Keith Fourneir's team. See More

The care team at Mdanderson took extremely great care of me, Can’t thank Dr. Su, Dr.Roubaud and Dr.Sisk enough. The nurses were extremely kind through my tongue cancer surgery and did everything they ...could to make me feel comfortable while I was in the hospital. This is the place to be if you are going through cancer. The whole staff had wonderful bed side manner and I felt I was in excellent hands the whole journey. I am now cancer free and alive because of them, Thank you Mdanderson and staff! See More

I travel here from Mississippi. After I was told there was nothing else they could recommend doing here. I was referred to this institution. I am battling papillary thyroid carcinoma. The endocrin...e center has been great. My doctor is Dr. Hu. She is wonderful! I just started some chemo therapy drugs in Sept and this trip in Nov. They have seen a slight improvement. I am grateful to God for building this facility and giving these doctors, nurses, technician and every staff member here the tools, knowledge and passion to help other. Thank you MD Anderson.

My friend has stage 4 head and neck cancer. He is uninsured and has applied for medicaid. When I called to try to get an appointment, they told me appointments start at $15,900.00. I told them he didn...'t have any money, "well, call us back when he's approved". I have never heard such a cold callous response. They don't care that he will die without treatment. They only care about money. See More

My son was diagnosed with stage four colon cancer that had metastasized into his liver. We had one surgery at home with a fabulous surgeon. But the oncologist took away all hope and basically gave hi...m the impression that they were writing him off. He was 25 And had a 17 month old son! Nope! So we called MD Anderson. His cousin helped me get things going. He has had wonderful care from Dr Shureiki and his team! Elcenia’s the BEST! Then Dr Vautey’s team was fabulous! We started this journey here at home August 15 and he was mis diagnosed before that. We saw MD Anderson for the first time in October. He had liver surgery on Dec 29. He is 26 and basically cancer free! Dr Chemeala and Dr Shureiki have him in an immune Therapy study that is kicking tail. In May he will have 4 more months of Chemo then we will see where we are. While he was in the hospital after surgery the nurses and staff went out of their way to make sure I was taken care of, too. The chaplain staff was awesome! We thank God for MD Anderson everyday!

CAR-T cell therapy is a new type of cancer treatment offered at MD Anderson through clinical trials and FDA-approved standard of care cell therapy products. But what is CAR-T cell therapy? And who should consider it?

Here's what our expert Dr. Sattva Neelapu has to say. #endcancer

CAR-T cell therapy genetically modifies a patient’s own T-cells to recognize and destroy cancer. It's currently used to treat certain types of leukemia and lymphoma.

A high-fiber diet can help reduce your risk for cancer, but it has many other benefits, too.

Here’s how fiber can help you lead a healthy lifestyle. #endcancer

A high-fiber diet may help reduce your overall calorie intake and help you maintain a healthy weight, which is vital to reducing cancer risk.
