I have not personally gone but i know several people who have. They are the best but they handle alot of cases so if its not as personal as you might hope it is one of the best Cancer centers in the world and this can be a slight trade off in the cutting edge care you will get.
I was set up at MD when I was first DX'd but so far have not chosen to go. If I have a recurrance I will be there as fast as I can get there for a second opinion.
Make a booklet to keep the results of all of your testing and to keep organized all of your past testing and the results. Take a good look around about.com and do a few google scolar searchs for "Questions to ask an Oncologist" etc. and highlight those that you want to ask.
This is what I want you to know: There are survivors-cured from every type and stage of cancers. Every single year 10% of all people with cancer,who are told there is no more hope leave the major cancer centers and are alive 5 years later.
90% of advance stage Breast cancer folks are alive 5 years from now. I only wish I had those stats on my side. I can only pray that all cancers get that type of stat soon.
I have had some of the most distinguished cancer experts say in front of me that they think and hope we will have a cure for cancer in the next 5-10 years.
You will hold on...O.K....you will hold on and make it to that cure.
