Just a few weeks after celebrating her 50th birthday, Claudia Sarbieski received a diagnosis of breast cancer. Since July 2018, Sarbieski has endured five surgeries with at least one more on the horizon.
“The medical team at Northwest Oncology has been tremendous to me during this ordeal,” she said.“I Had Several Recovery processes between procedures, and it was very demanding on me and my family. Dr. (Mohamad) Kassar recommended I meet with Amie Barry and the Integrative Medicine team.”
Anxiety topped the list of issues with which Sarbieski struggled. She held several discussions with Barry, who helped develop a plan to deal with the stress of her surgeries. “Amie suggested that I try hemp oil,” she said. “I have had great success with the caplets. I’m feeling calmer, and I give credit Integrative Medicine for helping me.”
Sobieski said that everyone at Northwest Oncology is a specialist at listening. “I can’t tell you how important it is to have compassionate people who listen to you when you’re dealing with something like this,” she said.
Northwest Oncology provides state-of-the-art cancer care by combining the latest in traditional medicines and progressive integrative medicine to help patients help their own bodies heal.
