i did but they said they wouldnt help or do what my meso doctors said needed done becasue its pain medication . not even just until i get into the pain management which will take a month. my old primary just ripped my off all my medications with no warning and ever since ive been trying to find a new one and none of them want to do anything.
Doctor: Dr. Phil, MD, Medical Doctor replied 9 months ago

the management i was with came under review.
Customer reply replied 9 months ago
my primary just kept passing me off to other doctors because no one here knows anything about mesothelioma
Customer reply replied 9 months ago
my doctors were fine especially my primary with her patients smoking marijuana. she prefered it over the opiates but now that i need the treatment and new doctor i dont smoke and havent even taken a test they just dont want to help unless its pain management. but i need a doctor to help until then and i have run out of hope and i am on my last try. my other cancer team surgical docs and oncologist are in omaha nebraska and kansas city missouri and cant do anything without the help of a doc here in wichita
Customer reply replied 9 months ago

I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
