in Toms River, Nj |
I was treated for back pain by my primary care physician for 4 months. He never ordered a MRI. I had been seeing Dr. Nahum for other reason. I saw him mentioned the back pain and he ordered an MRI. It showed lung cancer. He explained everything and what options were available. Before I left his office he ha arrangements for the hospital and had a team he works with, surgeons, radiologists in place. He followed through with consultation with them to set up a plan of treatment.
