in Altoona, PA |
Dr Ahmad, my mother believed in you. How did you not know why my mother suffered for a yr with pain in her arm when I myself looked it up and asked if there could be an underlying tumor somewhere? I am sad that my mom is gone and yes she been thru a struggle but she was a survivor. I have read that an incologist should know when there is a contstant pain in an arm with a cancer patient that there is something wrong. She should never have suffered the way she did. After a while nobody listened.
