    Decision Point

    We were seeking treatment at Rush Pres. and didn't like our options or how they were presented. We contacted Sloan Kettering and were told to go to Northwestern as it is a 'Cancer Treatment Center'.

    Problem with doctor

    Oh No

    1 month after chemo began the Dr. announced he was going on paternity leave. Apts were rescheduled to accommodate and while he was on leave we received a letter stating that he had quit and to find a new doctor. There has been no follow up and mom is feeling defeated and without an ally.
