Cancer-free since 2008, Pat Mayer credits Monmouth Medical Center and her
favorite physician with guiding her through her battle with breast cancer…
Pat Mayer of Sea Girt has been cancer free for 8 years. She credits her
Dr. David Sharon and the team at Monmouth Medical Center for playing a significant role
in her battle with cancer and her successful recovery.
“To say I am grateful for the care I received from Dr. Sharon and
the team at Monmouth Medical Center is an understatement,” Pat said.
“When I look back, I realize I have been blessed to meet some of
the best people during my journey. Dr. Sharon and the staff at Monmouth
Medical Center top that list.”
The highly skilled, compassionate team at Monmouth helped Pat fight breast
cancer with confidence. “From the receptionists, to the top surgeons
and oncologists, I was never less than impressed with the superior quality
of care,” she said.
She still recalls clearly her first meeting with Dr. Sharon and the bond
that instantly formed between them. “I was so nervous but at the
same time, felt a sense of confidence when he came out into the waiting
area to greet me. He even stood by my side while I made my next appointment.
That first impression is what led me down the road to fight for my health,” Pat said.
Dr. Sharon makes every effort to put his patients at ease and was touched
to know that this gesture made such an impact on Pat. “When I meet
a patient like Pat with some anxiety and concerns I try to help them find
their hidden strength. Pat was able to do that and it is why so has done
so well in her treatment and recovery.”
According to Pat, Dr. Sharon put her on track to receive the best clinical
care during and after her breast cancer treatment. They both truly believe
in the skill and spirit of the entire
cancer care program at Monmouth Medical Center. “I tell everyone that my wife has her mammography done at Monmouth.
What stronger recommendation is there?” Dr. Sharon said.
Because of her outstanding care, Pat sees the need to support the best
health care close to home.
“The team at Monmouth Medical empowered me. I
support Monmouth Medical Center because of the outstanding care it provides to our entire community and
you can too. You never know when you or a family member or friend may
need medical care. When those times do arise, having the best health care
options and support services in your community is invaluable.”
