Excellent care. Had both my surgery and chemo there, do q 3 month follow up currently, NED. Yukio Sonoda MD is my surgeon 212 639 6450; Michele Boyer is my onocologist. They round every case weekly, which is great!!
I am an OVCA, grade 4B lady who's just started my third kind of chemo, Gemzar, and never had a remission.
I'm seeing a medical oncologist/hematologist who I have faith in, and was highly recommended by my excellent GYN/ONC surgeon, I've wondered what a major medical center like Sloan Kettering would offer me that he doesn't. My blood is tested pre chemo at every treatment, and CA and CBC done monthly
Since he and his colleagues deal with cancer patients other than only OVCA, I was told that they'd more able to treat the cancer spread to other organs, and have a more favorable knowledge of chemo drugs on those organs.
I get a call back in 20 minutes, day or night if I call with a serious concern, or side effect issue and it one of the oncologists in the practice calling.
I guess it's what each cancer patient is most comfortable with, but that nagging thought is always in my mind. Would a major center be more up on, or have access to new treatments or chemo drugs.
Congratulations on being NED, that's wonderful.
