Warning!! Your initial visit will be wonderful as he’s very intelligent BUT that will be the only time you see him! I’m in Stage 4 had my first PET scan to see if the Tagrisso was working n not only did he not have the results I waited in a room 2 hours while he was taking new patients one after another in the next room! I could hear him plain as day. I never got my results n left. I only saw him on my first visit over a 8 month period before I switched Dr’s. My meds weren’t called in and it went to a MA que n I had to have another Dr. call them because you will NEVER get a call back. I spoke to a elderly lady in the infusion room she had not seen him either except her first visit and it had been a year! She said she just thought it was her as she was wondering too. This is peoples life on the line and to put anyone aside is unacceptable. My new Dr. does a PET every 3 months and is very kind and caring as is his staff. Please don’t go through what I experienced.
