    Have you developed a "fondness" for your treatment center or hospital?

    I can't explain it, but do you feel like you're in good hands, comfortable when there and that everything will work out?

      I had a hard time moving from one caregiver to the next (surgeon to radiation oncologist to chemo oncologist) knowing that I would not be interacting with them regularly anymore. It made me sad :( I am seeing my oncologist every 4 months now and will see my radiation oncologist in November (it has been a year since I've seen him). My surgeon 'turned me loose' last spring. There is a special place in my heart for Roger Maris CC and 7th floor Sanford hospital and all who work there.

      yep. i looooove kaiser. they really don't pay you much mind if they don't think there's anything seriously wrong with you; but once you are diagnosed, they are on it every step of the way, including post-treatment counseling. and it's one-stop shopping. my regular MD, my onc, my infusions, all in the same building. and my scans out in the back in the PET truck that they share among several of their hospitals. and the lab and the pharmacy right downstairs. plus, i get my results online right away, and i can order medicines online to be delivered by US Snail. what's not to like? the price is right too--the most expensive co-pay is for the PET scan, and that's $150. all other co-pays are from $10 to $30. the medicines are at discount, and the infusions of R-CHOP and the next days' Neulasta are FREE.

      also, the people i had to deal with, from the receptionists to the infusion nurses to the lab techs to the oncologist, were really NICE.

      Yes, yes, yes......I love the hospital cancer center I go to. They are the most wonderful caring people dealing with all of us in a terrible situation. My center not only treats my cancer, they are there for all of me. There isn't one area they don't help with and ALWAYS so friendly and smiles on their faces with kind words. They are my angels.
