When Fran Miller was diagnosed with multiple myeloma nine years ago, she knew right away that she would be in good hands with FMC Oncologist Dr. Kanwaljit Singh. Dr. Singh had cared for several of her family members, including her late daughter, Marcy. “He is the kind of person who loves a challenge,” said Fran, a Lancaster resident and realtor. “He does constant research to find treatments that will work well for me. I don’t feel like a number when I’m with him – I feel like a person.”
Fran said every visit she makes to Fairfield Medical Center begins and ends on a positive note, from the valet staff and the volunteers who greet her by name at the front door to the oncology staff who help her forget all about the cancer she’s fighting. “FMC is my safe place,” Fran said. “When I’m there for chemotherapy or an appointment, they never treat me like a sick person. I’m just Fran.”
Fairfield Medical Center’s comprehensive cancer care program is designed to provide a tailored treatment plan for every patient while keeping his or her care close to home. To learn more about FMC’s Cancer Care services, click here.
