35 for 35 wishes:
Friendly staff! They helped a stressful day be a pleasant day.
I loved how easy it is was to get my mammogram done and the short wait to get in. The staff was so friendly and helpful and I was on my way on to work in no time. Great experience!
In 2007 I moved from Asheville to Knoxville and took a chance on a new breast center, which was KCBC. I found there services to supersede anything of my past. A needle biopsy was performed at one of my early visits and quickly put my mind to rest with what turned out ok. I moved to Johnson City in 2013, but continue to make annual visits to KCBC because I know I can place my confidence in them.
I love how professional and kind all of the employees are. I also appreciate waiting for my results and having an answer before I leave the building. I am so glad I switched to KCBC for my breast health.
My best memory of KCBC is the loving care and compassion expressed by the members of your staff. When you have been diagnosed with cancer the first thing that comes to your mind is, am I going to die with this? The assurance from the Doctor and staff was that we were finding this early and your chances are very good. I needed the love and care I received that day. I have felt it in the years that have followed. You know what you are doing, and with Dr. Webber, it will be twenty-nine years in March. Thank you.
I started to go to KCBC after I was asked to take another x-ray and sent to a surgeon who said I was fine. But I was still worried and someone recommended KCBC. Since that day I have always felt confident in their thoroughness and if ever I have a problem I will feel confident in there treatment.
I have a family history on both sides of my family with breast cancer! Lately there seems to be more and more of my friends and family either going through treatment or having scares! I am sooo thankful to the KCBC staff who make an already stressful checkup so easy! It is apparent that they always take our feelings and nervousness into account! All my visits so far have been the best!
The comfort offered by staff
I was scared
Abt 15 years
Every time I go there the staff are always nice and helpful. My experiences are wonderful, very organized and helpful. I am treated as a person, not a number. It's like being a part of a family. I recommend KCBC to everyone. I love it!
The first time I came to KCBC, I didn't know what to think of having a mammogram. The ladies there were super nice and efficient. You just go from room to room and then you are all done. Love the experiences I have there and just the ease of getting my mammogram done. Thank you to all that work there and are so supportive.
I’ve been coming to KCBC since 1991, and I was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2011. That was a time I only had preventative care insurance. KCBC guided me through the process of applying for Blue Care Insurance, which I would have never known about. As a result, I got covered by Blue Care, which paid every penny for my surgery & treatment! You, & God, saved my life, and my home!! Thank you!
My best memory is how lovely and professional the people are at KCBC and how elegant---while being a state-of-the-art--facility. It was a lasting first impression.
Years ago when my mammogram was questionable, you did additional test while I was there. Thankfully this test showed good results. What a relief to find out the same day and not have to worry until additional test was done.
Being treated so professionally yet friendly, after bad experiences at another clinic is the reason I keep coming back!
Your staff diagnosed and treated my breast cancer in 2000. It was a very scary stressful time in my life being told you have cancer. It was a huge mental weight to process. I have always felt there's no place that could give me better or more compassionate care than KCBC. Thank you.
I just love that every time I have been to KCBC it has been a great experience. Everyone one is exceptionally nice and they make an experience that can be uncomfortable and make it as best they can. And they explain everything in a ways that make sense and easy to understand. I experience it each time I’m there since the beginning in 2007.
I've only been a patient for a year or two, but every time I am treated with kindness and respect. I appreciate everyone that takes time to treat me well. I’m looking forward to many more years of pleasant memories.
I recommend KCBC to all my friends. The feeling of caring and doing such a great job by all the healthcare professionals at KCBC! It’s such a good feeling when you walk out the doors after your examination knowing you have just received a very thorough exam. Hats off to all the fantastic employees of KCBC!!
I was so impressed with the staff they are truly the best. I have been to several different facilities for mammograms and that is exactly how I felt. I was at a facility. At KCBC I felt home and like I was family. From that first experience I knew KCBC is where I will always go from now on. You play such an important role in many lives. Congratulations on your 35th birthday, looking forward to many more to come!
I was a scared young mother, and was sent to KCBC with lumps, was cared for like I was the only patient with a problem. Love them for the care provided
During a time when there was questionable health concerns, I knew I could get the answers I needed by making the trip to KCBC. It was something I won’t forget. Thank you
They give you a personal experience even though they are a large place. I was impressed!
I was so nervous before my first visit last year. However, they took great care of me. You all are so friendly and comforting!
My time is valuable so I don’t like long wait times. Driving to Knoxville Brest Center from Oak Ridge is so worth it because of the gentle and kind care I receive. I never have to wait very long. It’s always fun to peruse the gift shop if there is time.
I had just brought home a foster child that had special needs, my mother and I had an appointment scheduled and I had to bring her with me. We weren’t sure how we were going to handle it but with the help of your staff they took care of her. This just shows how caring and kind your employees are.
It was just a special day to know there is still caring people that you can trust. I still have my special little girl and she will be 9 in September and we have got to adopt her. I look forward to the day I can bring her with me and she can experience the caring staff when she starts to have her test.
I appreciate you taking care of what I needed done right away. I had an ultrasound and found something. You did the biopsy right away. Thank you.
Awesome service! I was in and out on a Saturday in a flash. I live 1.5 hours away and the Saturday appointment was great with my schedule. Thanks!
Since the 80s I’ve been going to KCBC. I remember clearly going in 2006 going in at 1:00pm for my yearly mammogram. The tech found a questionable place in my right breast. They did numerous mammograms, ultrasound (by both tech and Dr K) and finally an MRI. When I left the office after 5, I knew I had a problem in my right breast. I did have cancer and had a double mastectomy in December. I feel the thoroughness that day could be the gift of extending my life by these 12 years. They did not schedule a bunch of return trips to Knoxville to determine my diagnosis but took the time to give me the answer that day. Several places would have had a bunch of return appointments without answers immediately. Thank you KCBC!
It stands out in my mind how friendly, helpful and caring each staff member is, whether you are signing in, scheduling an appointment, answering your questions, taking you to each area, or making you feel comfortable during scans. This has been true for each and every visit over the past 15 years too.
I get very nervous before doctor appointments and the surroundings there at KCBC make me feel relaxed. The staff is friendly and very organized.
My best memory is my first visit, 3 years ago. At my previous mammogram center, I was always in fear because I was being called back every year. I had an unnecessary biopsy one time. When I walked into KCBC for the first time, I was welcomed, and was treated like a guest. I did have an ultrasound because I was new, but even that was a good experience. I was assured that I would leave knowing my results, which was a blessing. Every single employee treated me with dignity and respect. They were warm and friendly and put me at ease. When I got to my car, I started crying tears of thankfulness and joy. I now knew where I needed to be. Thank you KCBC!
I picked this memory because my mammograms had turned into fearful visits. I even considered not having another one. But I decided to give KCBC a chance and I'm so very grateful that I did.
GYN found lump and I was extremely nervous due to family history. That was my first appointment. You guys made me feel much more at ease. I was so happy to get my results that day and not have to wait anymore! It was a rough time and you guys made it easier!
After being diagnosed with breast cancer after a routine mammogram at another breast center, and not liking the way we were treated, we came to KCBC for a second opinion. What a difference! All day, while undergoing more testing and exams, my husband was able to stay with me and we were treated so kindly and compassionately by everyone we came in contact with. Questions were answered in a manner we could understand, a plan of action was outlined.
What had been a terrifying and confusing ordeal at the original breast center was replaced by a more positive outlook. We felt like we could breathe a bit. The nurses and doctors at KCBC cared for us and I will never forget the genuine concern and compassion we were shown. I share this every time someone asks me where I went when I was diagnosed and where I go now for my yearly ultrasound and mammogram. Thank you KCBC!
Dr Webber making me feel I was so special is my best memory. The way he treated me, it felt like I was his only patient. He took the time to explain everything, never seemed in a hurry for me to finish my anxious self- fretting. I felt he had very strong faith, and that was so important to me.
KCBC is a calming place. Sometimes these kinds if appointments tend to make people a bit nervous but not at KCBC.
I would have never gone except my insurance no longer accepted the previous place I went for a mammogram. At KCBC it was a great experience all around. It is a very comfortable atmosphere. I’m super excited about the new procedure available.
My first experience with KCBC was last October 6th 2017. I came in for a screening mammogram during Mission Mammography. I instantly fell in love with the atmosphere of the office. Once my mammogram was completed, my aunt and I left. We hadn't made it far before I got a call that something had showed up. I returned on Monday October 9th and had a ultrasound & biopsy done.
Dr. Brown was absolutely amazing to me as she told me it was more than likely cancer. She held my hand while I cried & even explained everything in great detail to my husband & myself. On October 10th I received a call from Dr Brown that it was in fact Breast Cancer & again she helped me stay calm & answered all my questions that I had. In the following weeks I had numerous tests done & got an appointment with Dr Webber who is one of KCBC’s breast surgeons.
He is 1 of the best, most friendliest down to earth Doctors I have ever met. Dr Webber & the KCBC staff explained my options & helped me get my insurance set up & referred me to Dr Brig my Oncologist. I have since completed Chemo, had a double mastectomy, & completed 6 weeks of radiation. I'm currently still getting Immunology Infusions & working on Reconstruction. I decided to share to help someone else. I'm so grateful for the staff of KCBC. I highly recommend all of my friends to KCBC as they have an amazing staff and wonderful doctors.
The first class treatment and professional staff is what I love the most. I have been going for 16 years now. I have met women from states all around and I personally travel 1.5 hours to come for my visits.
I was nervous the first time and the tech is very caring and talks you thru the whole mammogram.
Once I was scheduled for a routine mammogram and mentioned a small lump. They immediately took me into the other rooms and did a comprehensive scan. It was a fat deposit but they treated me so well. I was scared and they helped me. Thank you.
The first visit I made to the center I was impressed with the kind, caring and knowledgeable staff. I knew from that day forward I wouldn't go anywhere else. That’s been twenty years ago now. Happy birthday KCBC!
KCBC is the best facility around Knoxville, TN. After doing some research, I found KCBC and the reviews were positive. I don't regret my decision. I became a patient of Dr. Webber's in 2007.
My first visit meeting with Dr. Webber was so comfortable. After our visit, I knew I had nothing to worry about. I knew it would all be ok. It was my journey and I would be fine. Thank you to the staff of KCBC for always being friendly and caring.
My best memory after being diagnosed with breast cancer, surviving surgery and radiation, receiving the wonderful news ever since that I was cancer free!
The first time I came it was to get a second opinion and I was so scared. You helped me overcome that and I’ve always felt comfortable there.
I was so scared on my very first visit because breast cancer runs in my family! I felt I was given upmost care. I’m 62 now and have been going to KCBC for around 30 years. I like the fact you know your results at the time of your visit and the caring staff from the front office, to the nurses and doctors.
The friendly staff and the doctor are very informative. I like getting my results the same day of my appointment. I went home happy with good results!
Calm atmosphere & courteous people
I was concerned about a lump in my breast. Everyone was very kind and caring to me. After testing my breast, I was assured that the lump was not cancer but fibroid sistic condition, which was a great relief!
I have been coming there about 21 years. But I remember that one visit more than the rest. Thank you!
Feeling releived that every thing was ok that cindy would be there to guide me though it all
I had been thing about all my family members who had had bad reports and this is how it started with a test l was nervous as always but this time cindy my sweet niece was working there now and she was just very strong and comforting it made all the difference she i my angel at time
I am not sure maybe 5 yrs or so
I had a large knot in my breast and was very nervous but the staff there was very patient and explained everything they were doing. They calmed me down and made the visit better. Thank you
Since the 1990s I’ve been coming to KCBC. I appreciate the breast exam and their thoroughness. Thank you.
I like the way that KCBC treats every patient the same, no matter the situation. From the moment you enter the office, until you leave, you feel like you are in the best care. It happens every time I come to KCBC.
Having a clear result after returning for a second mammogram when there was uncertainty from the previous mammogram is my best memory over the 20 years I’ve been a patient! Thanks Dr Wunderlich!
I had a cyst the size of an orange in my left breast. I had heard many horror stories as to what it could be, what would have to be done and so on. Leading up to the day I went I was miserable and terrified and they put all my worries to rest and treated the problem. Thanks to the great staff at KCBC I got great news, they drained the cyst and I was on my way with minimal to no pain. Thank you!
I was a little nervous this year coming in to get my (6th) annual mammogram, as my mom's breast cancer from 22yr ago has returned this year. I came into the KCBC lobby and felt like it was a better place to be right away, then saw the Dolly shoes and picture in the display and smiled - she's such a great and inspirational person! I felt a little extra boost to get through my morning. The staff, of course, were completely sweet and professional.
The people there are over and above nice to make you feel comfortable!
I have been having yearly exams at KCBC for 15 years. The staff is very nice and very knowledgeable. I am thankful for KCBC and feel comfortable every year when I come in for my mammogram.
My best memory is the friendly staff because they make you feel comfortable.
Being a breast cancer survivor the hardest part about getting a mammogram is the long Wait. With KCBC I can get the results the same day, so I have peace of mind, that I am cancer free for another year. That’s priceless.
After having two questionable mammograms, I had a biopsy scheduled at KCBC on Monday morning. Many prayers were prayed for me over the weekend. On Monday, many tests were done at KCBC, but no biopsy had been performed by the afternoon. Then the doctor came in, showed test results to me, and stated that no biopsy was recommended because the suspicious cells were not present! I was treated so well and so compassionately that I will never forget it! It was a faith-building, life-changing experience. Thank you KCBC for treating me so well for over twenty years!
Being at ease with the whole process from check in to check out is why I like KCBC. The process itself is uncomfortable but the ladies make it feel totally normal.
I have been doing this every year since I was 18 now going on 45 and have been to many places that don’t put you at ease and make you feel comfortable like KCBC does. Thank you.
It was recommended I have an ultrasound. Got results and consultation the same day. Everyone was so accommodating, and tried their best to out me at ease.
You made my first mammogram painless and eased my nerves! It's why I continue to go to KCBC.
The friendly staff in a stressful time
It just makes ur visit more bearable
At least 10 years
I have been coming to the KCBC since its opening 35 years ago.
The first location on Papermill Road had one office assistant and I think a single x-ray tech. The second location on Wisegarber Road was larger with a few additional assistants. The present facility at Dowell Springs has many capable, highly qualified, employee's with additional physicians, x-ray techns, an enlarged office staff, a boutique with unique supplies to accommodate patients, and a mobile unit that serves areas beyond Knoxville. It has always been such a plus to discover the results immediately upon examination before leaving the office.
All of this has become possible because of the forethought and progressive efforts of Dr. Kozlowski who has focused on women's breast health by providing the most advanced current knowledge and she keeps her patients so well informed. Having been blessed to be the daughter of a highly respected, much loved, physician who practiced for forty-five successful years, I highly value my friendship with Dr. K. that has evolved over these thirty-five years. Thank you my friend.
KCBC makes getting a mammogram easy.
8 years ago I was diagnosed with breast cancer at 39. KCBC helped me feel in charge at a time when I felt I had lost all control. The staff educated me about the diagnosis.
The first time I was a patient at KCBC I was so apprehensive. I was treated so gently and kindly. I was reassured upon leaving that all was well. It was a positive experience.
I had just moved to Farragut from Kentucky where I had always had my Mammograms at the hospital. There was a noticeable difference in the way I was treated.
I’ve been coming to KCBC for 3 years and it is the kindness and how I am treated that keeps me going back.
My best memory of KCBC is sitting in the back waiting room with several other ladies as I do every summer for my annual check. We were all in our KCBC robes, patiently and somewhat anxiously awaiting our turn. We began to talk about our KCBC visits, and one of the precious ladies (around my mother's age) spoke of her fabulous recovery and how KCBC had been with her every step of the way. I have always thought of my trips as "preventative care" - it was very humbling to be in the room with a 20 year breast cancer survivor and listen to her upbeat perspective. She allowed me to appreciate the individualized care that KCBC provides to each patient. I chose this memory because that kind lady was so open to share her story and it made me have a new outlook on my KCBC checks each year. Thank you KCBC!
Cancer is very familiar to my family. So I always go to my appointment and I’ve been going to KCBC since their beginning. I never miss. The KCBC Team is all so kind and they always listen to my questions and my concerns.
I am very nervous when I go in, but when I leave I am relieved.
They are the best at what they do.
My best memory is actually my first two visits this year. I am new to Knoxville from Florida and was amazed at how well staffed you are as well as the cleanliness of the center. I never expected to receive my results the same day and, in particular, to actually have a doctor give me my results right away. The Clinic surpassed all my 35 years of breast care among other places. Kudos to your Clinic and Happy Birthday!
All the nice nurses during chemo made me feel loved. Thank you.
From the first visit I was so impressed with the "Total" care given. One visit, with a complete workup and treatment that very day. It is the most important reason for being a patient of yours. Thank you KCBC!
I have been going to kcbc for over twenty years. I have had mri"s and biopsies and I love that they won’t let anything slip by them if possible. I also like that you can get your results then. I have never had a bad experience with kcbc and I would recommend them to anyone that wants peace of mind from doctors that treat you like family and know what they are doing.
Not having to wait for results at KCBC is the best!
I have had several episodes of "spots" on a mammograms over the years. One that I remember best – at another center I had to wait at least a week until a biopsy was scheduled and then waited two more weeks for the results. Some of the longest weeks in my life!
At KCBC the biopsy was the same day and I had the results the next morning. I felt that they really cared how I was emotionally - I was not just another patient. Thank you KCBC!
I am a breast cancer survivor. I started coming to KCBC after my treatments and reconstruction surgery. That was my first mammogram that did not cause any discomfort. I am so thankful that I starting coming here. KCBC makes me no longer dread having a mammogram. Everyone is so caring and nice. Thank you KCBC.
I am now 70 yrs. old. I was a school teacher in my mid-30s and felt something in my breast. I taught at Sequoyah School and I asked my principal who she would recommend for an exam. She said that she highly recommended Dr. Kozlowski and that her children went to our school. When I went I was a nervous wreck. Everyone on staff was very calming and reassuring that everything would be all right.....and it was! I have been coming ever since. I will always be grateful for the kindness and care I was given. Happy Anniversary!
I was a first time patient this year and it wasn't the scary progress that I thought that it would be. They made everything smooth and nice!
My coveted memory of KCBC was the non-medical feeling I got the first time I walked thru the door , it certainly aided in diffusing some of the anxiety I was feeling, as I continued thru the process I was taken back somewhat as to how the employees treated me as a person and not as a symptom.
I have had breast cancer and lived in quite a few states and I can without hesitation say that this has and is my most comfortably experience both medically and emotionally, and to put the icing on the cake when I mentioned I was now visiting KCBC for the first time, even though he is part of Penn State Medical and resides in Allentown PA, my previous doctor immediately recognized the facility and the founding staff and gave me a thumbs up of my choice.
It is the first impression that always counts in many areas of life and KCBC did not let me down.
The staff is always so nice and supportive during difficult visits. The flow of patients is excellent. I’ve been a patient over 20 years and I still like the capability to review the tests during the visit.
The staff is always so friendly and helpful! Even on my first visit, I remember many staff members going out of their way to make sure I was comfortable and informed throughout my visit! I am always very welcomed and that has been a plus to every visit.
I do not enjoy going to doctor appointments, but the friendliness and support of the staff at KCBC has been a highlight of every visit.
Thankfully, my best memories of KCBC are all hearing the words, "everything looks good, nothing to worry about."
KCBC left an impression on me because of how welcoming and nice the atmosphere and staff are!
Not every doctor’s office have a good vibe and atmosphere, but at KCBC they were very pleasant and nice.
I had my first mammogram 21 years ago at age 40. I met the doctor and felt so secure in the care I received. It was my first experience and the time and care all the staff took was greatly appreciated. I’ve been coming ever since!
No one really likes getting a mammogram, but I had always heard great things about you, and I would have to say, that I was treated well, and a procedure that is inherently uncomfortable, was made to be as pleasant as possible. Keep up the good work KCBC! Here's to 35 more.
I have been a patient of KCBC since the beginning. I think I’m patient number 3 or 4. I have been a patient ever since and all my results have been good. I have been blessed. Thanks to the doctors and the nursing staff at KCBC.
When I was told that they had found a nodule in my breast and I had to come back for further testing was the hard because I was so scare and afraid. Then the doctor took me in this room to talk to me and I was told it was nothing. I was so relieved and happy and that was the best memory. I know when I go to KCBC I’m in the best hands I could possibly be in. If there is a problem I know I’m at the best place to take care of it. That’s why I’ve been a patient for over 15 years. Thank you.
I have always been treated with dignity and respect at KCBC. My best memory is "we will see you next visit". It is great to get a final result before you leave and not have to be concerned with not knowing.
I think I have been a patient for almost 35 years myself. My best memory is the wonderful care that Kamilia has given me for all those years😉. I can’t pick just one, she has been there for me for all those years.
I'm new at this in my stage of cancer and they are informative and caring about what I am going through. I appreciate the friendly staff and quick results. Thank you.
I have always used KCBC since the beginning 35 years ago.. THANKS To their keeping me on my yearly exam, they were able to catch my breast cancer early. I AM ALIVE TODAY DUE TO EARLY DETECTION. I have been CANCER FREE for 5 years! Thanks and Happy Birthday!
My mother had breast cancer and died of the disease when I was just a child. After her death two of my siblings developed cancers that were linked to breast cancer. Because of the family health history I am considered at high-risk for breast cancer. I’ve been a screening patient for approximately 22 years. I started going to that facility upon the recommendation of a co-worker.
About three years ago MRI was added to my annual screening examination which had already included ultrasound, manual breast examination and mammography. The techs and doctors are very patient, considerate and professional at KCBC.
The added screening procedure of MRI gave me greater assurance of a correct diagnosis. The staff at KCBC always speak words of encouragement that make me feel that my well-being is of most importance as though I was their only patient. I’ve never experienced any pain, discomfort nor anxiety during any of the screening procedures. Results of the multiple procedures are conveyed to me very quickly so that I don’t have several days of waiting.
The friendly staff and getting my results the same day is my favorite part! Because I had a problem and they made me feel safe and secure! Thank you
In 2016, I had a scare. A spot was found on both my left and right breast. The staff took time to explain everything they were doing. Dr. Brown stayed late to do an ultrasound biopsy on my right after closing. Then she did a MRI biopsy on my left the following week. There was no cancer on my right, but unfortunately there was on my left. Again, KCBC explain everything. Dr. Webber took out the cancer on my left side. I appreciate how KCBC makes you feel like family and take the time to tell me everything.
My best memories are coming my very time for a second opinion & being told everything was fine, as well as being treated with respect & like I mattered. Everyone wants respect & it is an awesome feeling to know you’re OK because life is wonderful!!
My Mom goes as well. We both started because local doctor thought we had a problem & we wanted a second & BETTER opinion from a place we realized we could really trust.
For me the hard part is the flattening of the breast. The techs do a great job with efficient management of the equipment, which makes everything not take so long and it hardly hurts. At the most it's uncomfortable. You can't ask for better that than that.
Everyone is so friendly and gentle. This fall will be my 27th year with you all. Thanks!
The first time I came in for a mammogram I didn’t know it’s probably best not to bring your children and I brought my 6 month old. When it came time to get my mammogram he was crying and I was stressed out. One of the nurses was so nice and held and rocked my son right out the door so I could hear them while I got checked out.
It was a small gesture but it meant a lot to me as a new mom. That was years ago and I still remember it and I wouldn’t go anywhere else for my mammograms.
The professionalism of the staff at KCBC is what I love! They make you feel you’re not just a number. They really care.
