Patient Comments (1)
Foxboro, MA |
not honest with my diagnosis. turns out the original pathologist had mis-diagnosed first specimen. follow-up chest x-rays/CTs radiologist's concerns were ignored by Dr. M. i was told to "take walks in the fresh air" when i had a 2nd cancer [with metastasis to the brain] growing in the 18 months since my first surgery [which was technically perfect].
