We regret to inform our SOGA patients and surrounding communities that Dr. Gozia has been recently diagnosed with colon cancer. Please keep her in your thoughts and prayers as she battles this all too common disease.
In the coming weeks and months we respectively ask our patients to understand the necessary schedule changes required to help us accomodate Dr. Gozia’s treatment and recovery. This will be a difficult time for SOGA both emotionally and operationally, but we are committed to providing the same best-in-class care as Dr. Gozia goes through the recovery process.
Statement From Dr. Gozia
Some of you may have been asked to reschedule your appointments and others may have noticed some of our quivering lips and sad eyes. Almost exactly 5 years after my last bout with cancer it seems like I will have the opportunity to walk that road again. On a routine colonoscopy, which I had put off like many patients, I had a small spot of cancer. I will be in the process of having this evaluated and hopefully treated over the next couple of weeks. We ask your patience, prayers and understanding as we make this journey. I would take this opportunity to remind everyone to get a colonoscopy done, sooner versus later. – Dr. Penny Gozia
