Dr Gudena is the best Oncologist at Cone. He listens and takes into account your entire medical and personal condition. He works with you as a team instead of just doling out medication. He keeps me informed of the latest treatments and recommendations based on my cancer. I have had a complete 360 degrees turn around in my condition since he has been my doctor. I can't say enough good things about him. He is abreast of the latest cancer treatments and he discusses all available options with you before prescribing medications. He allows me to participate in my care fully and shares with me all of the side effects from any types of treatments. Wish I had him as a doctor years before.

Dr Gudena took my wife step by step through all aspects of her diagnosis and treatment and at the same time wrote notes and provided diagrams.
