      Well, it certainly looks nice. I didn't see it on the list of the 100 best cancer hospitals in the US. Then again, neither was the hospital I was treated in. Unless your grandmother has an unusual condition, it's probably just fine.

      My grandmother doesn't have an unusual condition, but she does have her life she is fighting for so I'm hoping for something more than just fine. :)

      This sounds like an execellent place to receive treatment. Looks like Atlanta Oncology Associates, Georgia Cancer Specialists, and Southeast Radiotherapy Specialists are all part of this clinic. Keep us all posted on your Grandmothers progress!!

      I don't know how close Atlanta is to where you are, but Emory University has a medical program that has cancer research and treatment. I am currently being treated on the other coast at University of California Davis. I have found teaching hospitals usually Have good programs and clinical trials. Do an Internet search of the best rated cancer facilities in your area. I know you want the best for your Grandmother and wish you and her good luck on her journey.

      Of course your grandmother is an extraordinary person and deserves extraordinary care. :-)

      What I meant was that the care in a place like the Cowles Clinic can be very good and, probably, a bit more personalized than in a major research hospital. If things go well then your grandmother will probably be happier at a place like Cowles. But, when things go wrong, when the prognosis isn't good, or when the options sound awful, a place like Emory is more likely to have cutting edge treatments that can make the difference.

      I might consider getting a second opinion frpm Emory anyway even if I planned to use Cowles.
