    Where can I find real recommendations for doctors in my area? I am fairly new to area so don;t have people I know to ask.

    A local online blog or something is one thing I was looking for but cant seem to find anything but the commercial sites.

      Whoever diagnosed you to start with is where I would start. they will know all the oncologists in your area. I agree with Nancyjac, the doctors know who is tops in their bus. I wouldnt put too much emphasis in what one person or another says. I go with what my dr.'s recommend.

      Hi...if you do a search on the type of cancer you have, it may help (example, my husband has colon cancer: "colon cancer specialists in New England"). I would also call...right here..ACS...they are wonderful. If you do a search on a support group in your area, for your type of cancer, you will find others who are going through the same thing and will be able to help. Also, once you find a Dr. do a search and see the qualifications and what others may say.
      Best of Luck!!!!!!!
