“Hi, my name is Dr. Angel and I’ve been at Southern Cancer Center since 2001.
I’m from Louisiana. My parents still live there and so we go to the Beau Rivage occasionally and it’s a halfway meeting point for a family get together sometimes. I like to play poker, video poker is what I really like.
I like to cook, like to read cookbooks. Things with rice like gumbo and beans and what not. Things that are made with a roux are probably my favorite things to cook. Usually on Tuesdays, I will bring something that I’ve made to the office and a lot of the patients will come and see what I’ve tried to make that day and see if they can have some.
If it’s football season, my husband will be watching football, I’ll be cooking in the kitchen. Sometimes we have friends over. I went to the Ohio State University and LSU and my husband is an Alabama fan, so it gets a little bit exciting. I usually just sit there and watch and don’t say much cause usually we win.
I like to go abroad. I also like to go to Orange Beach a lot. Just get a condo and relax there on the Gulf. That’s probably one of my favorite things to do. Me and my husband and we have a couple that we travel with and just spend more quality family time with one another there.
I think the thing that makes me feel most accomplished at the end of the day is if I’ve connected with a patient in an important way. It’s that personal connection with patients that makes me feel accomplished. There’s so many dynamics when we take care of cancer patients- their families, their income, their background- so many factors play into these issues. So sometimes things are weighing heavy on their heart and I think that connection is what really makes you feel that you’ve done something for someone.”
Dr. Angel has been my doctor 14 years. She takes the time to listen to all my concerns and answers all my questions. Through my journey her compliments have given me a lift.
Dr. Angel is very concerned with my health. She is thorough with her reporting to me and my family, and I really believe she cares about my well-being.
Dr. Angel has been treating me for over 14 years for breast cancer. She has always been patient, caring and knowledgeable. Two of my daughters are now in need of an oncologist and both have requested Dr. Angel because of the trust they have in her abilities.
Dr. Angel’s an honest and personable friend that you can trust. She takes time with patients to discuss recent research, the credibility of that research, and how treatments will affect the body on a cellular level and why. She never rushes her visits and tells you exactly how it is. If you want the best treatment and the honest truth about it, she's definitely the one for you. I would not go to anyone else.
I love this lady. Dr. Angel knows more about cancer and its treatments than most doctors. She is very matter of fact with information and always answers our questions and concerns. I have put my life in her hands, and I trust her to give me the best care and the longest enjoyable life she can.
