We consider Dr. Cmelak a blessing and a lifesaver. If it hadn't been for him and a team of surgical and oncological specialists, my husband would not be here today. The Cancer team we were originally referred to in Oak Ridge, TN, did not have time to review the medical record the day we found out he had cancer. Fortunately, the ENT specialist suggested we go to Vanderbilt and we did. We have never regretted that decision and highly recommend it to others.
