After the first round of BCG and a follow up cystoscopy......I am cancer free. The doctor even did a deep biopsy on the spot where he removed the polyps previously and it was all clean and good according to the pathology report. I owe you and your group a debt of thanks on the BCG recommendation.You can use me as a reference anytime.Thank you.....so much.
The Cancerdocs oncologist who examined my case has the amazing ability to not only listen to what a patient is saying, but to hear what the patient is asking. I consider my case complex, and was deciding between two different directions, either of which could change my life. He helped me recognize the risks and benefits of both paths, and I am now comfortable with my decision.
We appreciate the fact that you guys exist. You were a great resource.
Cancerdocs is an amazing place to get a second opinion, get questions answered, and have some peace of mind your not nuts. I highly recommend getting set up with them. They are patient and very easy going and very polite. Non judgemental and extremely helpful. It has made having a child with cancer a little easier to deal with.
I have to admit that you have an excellent service. Speaking with one of the top US oncologist clarified many doubts and got us peace of mind.
I am very grateful to you. Thanks so much for your second opinion. I would be happy to share my very positive experience. Thanks again. I may actually sleep tonight!
If I would've received a second opinion, it would have stopped my cancer
I do not have access to great oncologists where I live. Using cancerdocs has been excellent at helping find the right treatment option for my patients
My mother passed away only 2 months into her diagnosis. I think she would have survived longer should we have gotten that second opinion, researched another oncologist. Don’t waste time on the wrong doctor!
