    Encouragement in Finding Oncologist

    Added Sep 30, 2015

    I was encouraged today in finding an oncologist. I called another doctor to let her know what was going on and just asked her office assistant if she might know a good oncologist. Her office assistant called me back with the name of a person my doctor went to school with: Dr. RobynYoung… Her name sounded very familiar so I started searching …

    My internist, Dr. Donna Casey, set up my initial appointment with Dr. Wilfong. He is an unbelievably positive doctor who tells you the truth but who encourages you all along the way. He is a very compassionate man. I suspect he hurts a lot – being an oncologist means you see some huge successes along the way, but you also lose patients to the in…

    I was diagnosed with small-cell adenocarcinoma (lung) in 9/08, & the upper lobe of my left lung was removed by a lung surgeon. She was part of a group, & following surgery, she handed me over to an oncologist in the group. A month or so after that, that dr left the practice, & I was “given” to another oncologist. In the midst of all this, my fee…

    Added Aug 12, 2009

    Really, there’s not much of a story here. You see, my wife is a registered nurse. She worked for 5 years for our family doctor. As a result, there was a little more than a doctor-patient relationship with my family doctor. He wanted the best possible treatment for me, and I wanted the same. I was only 30 at the time of diagnosis and have 4…
