      I recommend contacting the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network, that maintains a database of doctors with experience in these types of cancers. http://www.pancan.org/section_facing_pancreatic_cancer/oneonone_support/ They may be able to offer some suggestions.

      I was going to recommend that you drop a line on @FreeBird about this, but I see he already got to it for you.

      @FreeBird, you da man! Thanks for your help. I hope Dad is doing well.

      Dear Risa,

      The Providence Cancer Center has a website (you can locate them on Google) and you can locate oncologists by looking under specialties-there are a number of them listed. You can also them phone the hospital to ascertain whether they're experienced with Pancreatic Cancer in depth.

      Best of luck to your friend.

      You may also want to go to the Johns Hopkins Pancreatic Cancer discussion page --here is a link to cut & paste. There is a wealth of knowledge there, and if you ask your question there, there will likely be people with first-hand experience of doctors in that area that will answer your question. I would also recommend the site that FreeBird recommended. Prayers to you and your friend.
