Transfer of care to MDA


has anyone who is in remission (surveillance) time and tried to transfer care to MDA? I also had a few second opinions I wanted to get on the imaging and surveillance.

So far I have been so far, unsuccessful. i'm not sure why. Have done a number of phone calls, many emails, etc - they don't seem to want to accept me. Maybe they only work with active cancer patients, and leave surveillance/management to local physicians?

Appreciate the comments and if someone has some experience they could share on this.

    I have no experience, because

    I have no experience, because just finished my first 3 month checkup, but maybe you didn't get to the right department?  Have you tried Cancer prevention at MDA?  Maybe they could guide you.

    Hi LiseA,

    Are you in the cancer prevention department (after your treatment?). Also if you don't mind me asking, what were you diagnosed with? Mine is S-2 NPC Squamous Cell carcinoma. Trying to get a second opinion on certain things.

    Thanks! Any insights owuld be very helpful on how to navigate the big hospital.
