Decision Point (On choosing an oncologist): I started with a doctor in my area but felt that they didn't listen to m,y concerns and treat me as a equal. He was condescending and tried to placate more than discuss issues. The onco test showed I was triple negative so I went for a second opinion at Dana farber. The Dana farber dr called my local dr to say that he did not believe the onco test or that I was triple negative. Then I left 4 messages Witt the local dr to discuss but he never called me back! I switched to Dana farber, best decision ever. Advice is that if you have any question about your situation or treatment go for a second opinion!
