Patient Comments (1)
Paramus, NJ |
On my initial diagnose, he told me that I had a "good cancer" and that "with my type of cancer, on average I would live 7 years so I had plenty of time to get my affairs in order". On a subesequent visit I was told my cancer was boring as it was progressing at a very slow pace. Perhaps these comments were meant in jest but to me they were callous and insensitive. After that I switched to Mt. Sinai. Also, I am 12.5 years past my initial diagnose and am still at stage 0.
