You, the patient, are your best advocate. Ask a lot of questions and make sure you get answers and see the research on which the answers are based. Dr. Ellis is very easy to talk to.
in Nixa, MO |
During my wife's chemo things were good. After chemo not so much. She waited two hours past her appt. time and had to leave. The quack, Dr. Ellis fired her. Since then she has been unable and less willing to trust Hulstons doctors. When there is only one cancer center in town, you go there. Oncolgists who fire patients because their nurses schedule patients they can't see on time should be fired for failing their humanity test.
