    I just found this website. I am a patient of Dr. Poyner and find myself extremely lucky to have been referred to her. Having had cancer, she provides me with confidence and the knowledge that I have the very best care.

    My family and I have known Dr.Poyner since my Mother-in-law was diagnosed with stage III ovarian CA in 2005. We were blessed to have Dr.Poyner as her surgeon and now her oncologist. My Mother-in-law was given 3 months to live in our area, we went to NY hoping for a better prognosis. Dr.Poyner sat with us and discussed surgery and treatment in length. We are still fighting the cancer, but with Dr.Poyners expertice she is still with us today and how fortunate we feel for that. GOD BLESS YOU DR.POYNER!
