To change my medical oncologist or not to change my medical oncologist that is the question? (a bit of play on the quote - "to be or not to be"
Well, I started Chemo today at the MD Anderson Bay Area Regional office which is 15 minutes from my house and free parking. Though they are only coordinating the chemo orderd by my primary team I had a meeting with the medical oncologist there today prior to chemo and really liked him and his nurse. While he does not specialize in head and neck cancers I wanted some thoughts on switching medical oncologist? no offense to the one assigned but we did not 'click' and since I want a nurse I can be more confident is it wrong to switch doctos since chemo has begun. Keeping in mind I will only see the medical oncoloist I dislike in a coulple weeks.
