“Hi, I’m Dr. Uzel I’ve been with Southern Cancer Center since it’s inception in 2007.
We work hard when we are at work so our off time is cherished, so Saturdays are days we look forward to. I live out in the country, I have a place and a little property and enjoy getting out on the property. There’s always things to tend to on the home front. So you work hard on those and get those done and then play. I love the outdoors. It’s especially fun if I can get some biking in or maybe kayaking or hiking or something like that.
I have a sweet wonderful family, so family time is always in there too. We try to do dinner once a week. I love to cook and I’ve discovered that if you cook, they will come. I like to cook Mediterranean style. I think it’s healthy. It’s fun. It’s flavorful.
I like to travel locally. Alabama has some wonderful places to go and see. I recently discovered hiking in the Sipsey wilderness in the northwest part of Alabama. But I also like travel all over, traveling overseas, traveling in the country. It’s just fun.
I am very proud that that I can have conversations with patients today that are radically different than the conversations I had with people in my training. We have new treatments that change what happens to people now compared to even 10 years ago, 15 years ago. So we have people walking around healthy and living well because of new treatments, and they wouldn’t have been doing that 10 years ago, 15 years ago.
What I love about Southern Cancer Center is that there are people behind the scenes working every day to make things better. To meet their every need to make sure they understand their illness. We try very hard to accomplish all of that. I don’t think you’ll find people trying harder.”
Dr Uzel is wonderful and very knowledgeable. It is obvious she truly cares about each patient. She spends the time with her patients to make sure they understand everything and answers all questions. She actually listens to her patients and provides compassionate care every single time! I wish all providers displayed her bedside manner.
We love Dr. Uzel. She is very sweet and caring while giving you all the information you need. She is very knowledgeable and takes time to explain everything to you. After a terrible experience with another doctor, Uzel was a breath of fresh air!
What can I not say about Dr. Uzel. She is caring, straight forward, and has the best bedside manner you would ever want from a doctor. I love her. She explains your treatment in detail and always makes sure before you leave that you understand and are comfortable with what’s going on with your care. Thank you for taking care of me Dr. Uzel.
I have been in treatment for several years and Dr. Uzel is a wonderful doctor. She keeps you informed and in the know with what to expect and how to prepare yourself for the condition you are in. Her staff is very good and kind to deal with and helps with your paperwork and pharmacy needs.
Dr. Uzel is very compassionate and knowledgeable in her field. She does not rush in and out during an office visit, she gives you her undivided attention. She listens to you when you have any concerns or questions. She gets an A+ rating.
