Help with 2nd Opinion
As with most major medical decisions, we are looking into a 2nd opinion not only for the pathology report but also for the course of oncology treatment - to make sure that we are doing the right thing and also to establish a connection with someone if needed in the future. I'm eliciting your help. We are looking for a top dog - big wig - the best of the best - doctor in neuro-oncology. Typically, these are the doctors that you can't simply call up on the phone as a regular Joe Schmo and get an appointment next week. You need to have an in - need to know someone who knows someone, etc. So maybe you are the one who knows someone who knows someone...are you? Please keep in mind that we need a neuro-oncologist - not a neuro-surgeon or other oncologist. This is a specialist. I'm sure many of you (unfortunately) have connections with a great oncologist but that's not what we need - it needs to specifically be a neuro-oncologist. Thanks for your help! E-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have a connection!
