“I know it may sound strange to say

that I had a 'wonderful experience'

at a cancer center, but that is exactly

the way it was at Lifefirst Imaging

and Oncology. Dr. Karolewics and

his staff are professional, caring, and

extremely compassionate; and they

have state-of-the-art equipment.

They truly treat the patients' needs...

mind, body, and spirit! Thanks to

them, I am a survivor!”

“When first diagnosed with cancer,

I researched reputations and success

rates of cancer treatment centers

nationwide. I narrowed my choice to

a well known treatment center in

Birmingham and Lifefirst in Cullman.

The lead physician in Birmingham

told me, ‘We will be glad to treat you,

but Dr. Karolewics in your hometown

has the same equipment we have and has an excellent reputation’. I chose Lifefirst in Cullman, and found not only state-of-the-art equipment, but a compassionate team dedicated to my recovery. I am cancer free and highly recommend Dr. Karolewics and his team at Lifefirst.”

— Lavell Thrasher
