The link above will give you some information about MD Anderson Cancer Center.  My understanding is that it has one of the best reputations in the country.

I live on the East Coast of the US, so it would be difficult to get there and, in addition, they do not accept the traditional Medicare A and B insurance plan, (which is what I have) just the Medical Advantage plan. 

Hope the above info will be of use to you. Smile

Hi Dorothy 

Was thinking of going there for a second opinion since I know they are at the forefront and there are so many barriers to getting new medication here in the Uk. Do you think it's worth a visit? X

Patsie, if you can afford the cost of the trip then I would say "yes", it would be worth your while to get that second opinion.

I would second DorothyMarion's comment--I know it's one of the most highly regarded cancer centers in the US, and I know people who have traveled great distances for treatment there. It's one of 22 hospitals in the Natl Comprensive Cancer Network, which sets care standards nationwide.
