      This was just a check-up and without the scan results, what we had to talk about was limited. But he did call me the next with the results. Have a couple more questions since I now have the results, but they are always good to help me and answer my questions.

      No proposed treatment discussions occurred. The doctor is excellent with regard to chemotherapy but seems to have his hands tied with regard to offering or suggesting any type of integrative medicine. Very frustrating.
