Saw him for lung cancer. He spent a long time going over various options. I'm doing well and he is the reason.

Dr Bridges was always in a hurry. He seemed to dismiss any questions or concerns that I had. He did not provide any guidance about what to expect during my chemotherapy. This may be routine to him, but it was not routine for me. Once while Dr Bridges was on vacation I was scheduled to see the nurse practitioner, she gave me more information in that one visit than he did in my entire 4.5 months of treatment. The staff at MISTI is amazing, unfortunately Dr Bridges was not.
