“ Every time I think of her my heart is warm.”

Melinda Wolford felt an immediate connection with Dr. Annie Tan when she was diagnosed with endometrial cancer in 2013. Her diagnosis initially left her shocked and overwhelmed, as she had gone to the doctor for a routine screening and some bleeding concerns. Melinda was feeling nervous and afraid of what was to come.

All those feelings faded away within a few minutes of meeting Dr. Tan, as Melinda describes feeling a sense of peace and security. “Dr. Tan showed so much genuine compassion. She truly cared from the bottom of her heart.” recalls Melinda and in that moment, Melinda knew everything was going to be ok. My nurse was unbelievable, the receptionist was the first person I saw and was so welcoming and calming. 

“Everyone at Minnesota Oncology is there because they love people and want to help. I’m healthy and good today all because of Dr. Tan and her team.”
