What doctor will treat me? - Tracy

Decision Point Associated with Thyroid Cancer. Posted on September 11, 2012 View this journey (15 Experiences)

Virginia Mason 1970's was the place to go for cancer treatment on the west coast. I remember going there after many very uncomfortable tests and a couple of surgeries to sit in my hospital gown with a group of other patients waiting to be seen by a room full of doctors. I was about 14, shy and surrounded by men who all wanted to feel the lumps on my neck and discuss my case as if I did not exist. I then spent several weeks going from doctor to doctor until I was accepted by Dr Nielson (I much later found out he only took terminal cases and was known as Dr. death).
