Hi everyone,

My dad is needing to find an oncologist that specializes in head and throat cancer that is located in the Ft. Worth area.  If you know of anyone good could you please let me know.  He is needing to begin radiation treatments and has not been referred to an oncologist yet.  I just feel like he should have had a specialist a long time ago, just to make sure that the treatment they are choosing for him is what he really needs.  He has already had surgery and has also been to the dentist.  The next step is radiation.  Any recommendations would be helpful.

I was treated for tonsil cancer at Texas Oncology in Denton. Dr. Jeffery Morton (radiation) Dr. Chicion (oncology). It was based on M.D. Anderson protocol. I'm 7 years out and doing fine. It is their south office on I-35E across frpm Denton Regional Medical Center.

Hope this helps.

Thank you for the information.  Denton is only a 30 minute drive from where I live so that wouldn't be a bad drive at all.  I have been researching the internet for radiation and oncology dr.'s and it is very hard to go thru all of them, read the reviews, and so on.  I love this site because you get information from others that have been thru the same ordeal.  Thanks so much for the dr. info!!!!

If you go there, tell them Hello from Larry Joy. I now reside in Minnesota and have not seen them in six years.

I wish you the best.
