Since I was diagnosised last year while I was in NC but reside in WI, I have had 2 separate oncologists. I can't advise but I can share what has I have had with the two. First both are following the same regime with me as far as follow-up. Appointments for CT scans are the same rotation...when it comes to personalities, I really cannot separate them! I have been lucky in that they both are fairly young! They are cheerful and up-building! I want my oncologist to include me in all discussions so that I am a part of not an onlooker!
As scary as this is I want an oncologist that is available!
So I guess what I am saying is this, decide why you like a DR. Then look for at least that in whomever your choose.
If you think you are beaten, you are.
If you think you dare not, you don't.
If you'd like to win but think you can't,
It's almost certain you won't.
Life's battles don't always go
To the stronger or faster man,
But sooner or later, the man who wins
Is the man who thinks he can. (Walter D. Wintle)
