Dr Birnbaum is brilliant, honest and compassionate- qualities that one doesn't often find together in oncologists. He is, also, empowering. He discusses the illness, and offers options to the patient, in terms of treatment, making sure we're both on the same page. His question Are the side effect worth it? pretty much sums up his approach, He deals with not only prolonging life, but prolonging quality of life. I travel from North Carolina to see him. I guess that says it all.
