Was currently being treated at Stanford but I have become unhappy with my situation there I'm thinking of transferring my care to UCSF. How does the care there compare¡??

Normally, patients are well-served at either. I see no problem, other than logistics or continuity of treatment, in moving to UCSF. If you will have more confidence at UCSF then, by all means, consider being treated there.

Hi and welcome.  When I was originally diagnosed with a very rare form of B cell NHL with possible T cell involvement my local Hemo/Oncologist sent me to Stanford for a second opinion.  After several appointments with Stanford and the leading expert there on my NHL deciding to leave and go to GenenTec I wasn't very pleased.  I than self referred myself to UCSF.  I much preferred the care and expertise I was given at UCSF.  Through out my treatment and afterwards I was closely followed by my UCSF doctor, who I loved and greatly respected.  I stayed in my local community for treatments/scans and follow up as I had a long history with my local hemotologist/oncologist.  My doctor at UCSF was Dr L Kaplan.  Both hospitals have a long standing record of outstanding cancer care.  I wish you well in your cancer journey.
