I found out yesterday that my oncologist is retiring. What a bummer! He is one of those rare doctors who really cares about his patients. He took me on when my cancer recurred at the beginning of this year. I'm sure it can be dicey to take on a patient who had been seeing another doctor, but he did it without flinching.
There's another doctor who will be taking over his practice, but I'll be going to a doctor at Fox Chase Cancer Center. Going there will be a bit of a commute, but it will give me the opportunity to go somewhere where they have clinical trials.
I will really miss him.
