Early study found it had high accuracy, but experts say it won't replace colonoscopy anytime soon

I agree ctcofa do good work, when it (treatment) fails it will usually fail no matter what, not everyone can be cured. They give good choices. Traditonal sources only have a small remission rate, around 5% or less and pancreatic cancer even lower. Whenyou combine traditional with natural you have a much better chance of survivial

I watched my best friend die at the Phoenix Az. center. She was doing extremely well until her insurance ran out and then they gave her an option. Come up with several thousand dollars to continue treatment or go home and die.
These are good choices??
Oh they were sweet as pie and could not do enough until the money ran out. Then they basically said we cannot do anything more for you. It's 100 percent money motivated. You all talk about how well they treated you or your loved one but no one ever says anything about the people who die everyday because they do not have the money to go to a place like CTCA.
No one is talking about all the people they do not take because of their greedy top dollar money only ways.
Every American born here should have the right to the same health care. But I'm sure all you Republicans believe only the privleged deserve health insurance.

Dear "Cooliet"...from a 3x cancer survivor having spent 105 days straight at the 'philly-based CTCA last year. THERE IS ABSOLUTELY NO POSSIBLE "WAY" YOU CAN EXPERIENCE A MORE FAVORABLE OVERALL CANCER FIGHTING EXPERIENCE UNTIL YOUCALL TODAY & GO ASAP TO "EXPERIENCE" THE FULL CTCA-EXPERIENCE!!!!!!
...a famous quote states; "question everything"....when it comes to your mortality & the all-too-many-positive-proofs by CTCA, the time you spend "questioning" is possible time "lost" from your LIKELY RECOVERY DUE TO THE ENTIRE CTCA-EXPERIENCE.....start-to-finish. Period.
...do this for YOU & the ones you love. PLEASE CALL RIGHT NOW...and please; do keep me posted!!!! ( : "billsheely"

My wife has biliary cancer that has matastasized to her liver and lungs. We've tried two different chemo therapies that have not worked and our Oncologist said we need to look for Phase I trials. I called CTCA yesterday and we will be going down for a consult Monday night to Philly. Can't hurt trying.
As the story goes; A man came home from his first visit to an oncologist and his wife asked how it went. The husband said "The Dr. said if I go with him I'll only live for two months, so let's keep looking."

My husband was diagnosed with stage 4 colon cancer in April of 2011. We made a phone call to Cancer Treatments Centers of America. My husband talked to them at length. After his phone call, he had a strong feeling that there was some kind of scam involved.
They claim the provide the most recent technology to treat cancer and many people went to one of these centers and have had a good outcome. All I'm saying here is that they may have had that good outcome anyway.
My husband called the cancer center back the next day and then finally it occurred to him. Yes ... Cancer Centers of America will fly you and a close family member to whichever center that you like and put up the family member in a nearby hotel. In the meantime, the patient receives some very expensive treatments, but generally they are the same treatment that they'd receive at their nearby cancer center, but the Cancer Centers of America charge much more.
OK, so your insurance is covering everything and you may or may not get better. At any rate, as soon as your insurance is maxed out, they send you home -- sick and without insurance.
I'm always a little skeptical about people who want to give you too much for free. You'll always pay a price.
For those of you who attend, I wish you the very best. Maybe the do work wonders.

No, but we got a second opinion after we started treatment
