Survivor since 2007
Been there.... done that. I detested my oncologist at first. He was cold, dismissive, but I actually came to like him and his staff. I loved my surgeon, my anesthesiologist, all the techs, but at first, the oncologist was just a stinker. If you are not happy with your oncologist.... FIRE HIM/HER. It is tough enough to go through all of this and to be unhappy with the lack of personal supportive emotional care.... go somewhere else. I, too, was in the healthcare business and never forgot the patients needed emotional support as number one. I would make notes on patient's charts about their kids, hobby's, their pets, anything to help make a connection with them. It only took a couple of minutes.... I completely and totally agree with Diana. Keep us posted, Angie.
