Personal Statement

Lowell Anthony listens to Geri's heart during a followup visit.

It takes a village to treat cancer, so when the patient is initially evaluated at Markey Cancer Center, a care plan is developed across specialties. So it's more encompassing than just a single visit to one specialist who treats cancer. Right now in oncology, the most exciting development is immunotherapy. Our challenge is to find out how we integrate this into other forms of how we treat cancer; both from other medicine, other drugs and potentially other modalities such as radiation.

      Dr Lowell is rude. He would not let me speak. Spoke over me and cut me off at every attempt to ask questions. Gave a recommendation on how to treat before seeing my test results. I know this because his office staff called a few days later to ask where the test was done so the could request the results.

      *Dr. Anthony and his staff were extraordinarily compassionate and concerned. The review and explanation of the condition were thorough and clear. We were amazed with their follow-through: a scan within the hour, a personal follow up phone call from *Dr. Anthony, an appointment with a rare disease pulmonologist *Dr. James McCormick for DIPNECH.
