After reading the letter from Shirlee Clevenger, I had to expound my regrets on what she wrote about. The letter was in the February 22 issue of the Times-Union. I am wintering in Florida and receive the newspapers a few days late. I am saddened to hear that Dr. Goksel could be leaving Warsaw. How could KCH let him go? It would be a detrimate to Warsaw andf the surrounding comunities to lose a doctor with Dr. Goksel's credence and compassion.
My husband (Jerry) and I both have been patients of Dr. Goksel and could not imagine going through our cancer problems without him.
I, like Shirlee would like to ask any of Dr. Goksel's current or past patients to get get the good words out there for him. Write your letter to the Times- Union or to the Hospital Board. Just do it!

I think KCH needs to rethink their money making strategies. They are chasing patients away by 1) not having the appropriate staff to take care of cancer patients needs and 2) getting rid of such a wonderful, professional, caring doctor. Who is making the decisions anyway? Do they really care about their patients or just about the bottom line? My mother was released from the hospital on a Monday and by Friday they were calling her asking where her 10% of the bill was and when she would be able to pay. If that is the way they are going to be overall. Then I advise all of their patients to go somewhere else.
Dr. Goksel exceeds all of our expectations and goes the extra mile to help. However, unfortunately Cancer is not going away. He needs the staff to help him. Why are we having to send patients to other facilities?
KCH needs to wake up and realize that they are sending their profits to everyone else.

I too am a patient of Dr. Goksel's, I was diagnosed 5 years ago. thanks to him and the entire staff at the Cancer Center I am still here fighting this horible disease. I just can't beleive that the KCH board would let this Dr go. as far as I am concern it would be a HUGE LOSS for all of his Cancer patients and family's. so SHAME on the person (persons) responsible for his leaving.
