Patient Comments (1)
in Fort Worth,TX |
My dad went in with a lung mass. Brought in his old records of prior melanoma. Had a lung biopsy, which was inconclusive. The biopsy said it could be lung cancer, but couldn't rule out melanoma. Dr. Firstenberg opted to go ahead with chemo with older,lesser used chemo drugs for lung cancer. These drugs caused peripheral neuropathy, among other side effects that affected my dad with great pain until the day he died 6 months later of melanoma. He never had lung cancer. Don't use this doctor.
