I'm trying to find the best doctor I can for Mark, someone who specializes in rectal cancer stage IV patients. I've spoken with Cancer of Hope. They want $1050 (NOT including labs or scans) and have a long waiting list. UCLA never called me back - they had an answering machine at their "new patient hotline."

I'm looking for a great doctor for yet another opinion, not necessarily a fancy hospital. Seems if they wanted to help people they wouldn't charge such exorbitant prices for a consultation. Looking forward to your posts. Thanks!

I have a friend who goes here for oncology; http://www.premiereoncology.com/po/.
I am stage 4 and go to stanford. I looked into both City of Hope and Dr Economo (sp?) at UCLA. I know its hard getting into the system but once you are in, then things get going. Dr Bilchick at John Wayne cancer Center is an aggressive surgeon. Hope this helps.

Kathryn -

You might check out Hoage Hospital - they are one of the nation's leading cancer centers.

You might want to contact Dr. Heinz-Josef Lenz at USC. I do not know what their charges are, but he is an excellent oncologist. Good luck to you.

lots of good docs at City Of Hope..and I didn't know they had waiting lists..you might check out their trials. They are a center with federal funds, and more options than most.
