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.

    In the past, I have enjoyed my visit with Dr. Anthony because I have felt that he listens to my concerns. This time, I actually had some questions and I don't feel like he was listening. There was no examination and he was supposed to call to talk through my results because the report from the radiologist wasn't ready yet. He still has not called me and that appointment was last Friday. I saw that the report was ready shortly after I left the office.

    Dr Anthony is a great doctor. He has always explained everything clearly and explained the types of treatments that are possibilities to address the current spread of my cancer. Since I am in Wisconsin at present, Dr Anthony is working with an oncologist near by to arrange treatment.

      We were very impressed by *Dr. Perkins, *Dr. Anthony. They took the time to really look at my options and actually showed us the PET scan (which we hadn't seen) to explain their plan going forward!

      After getting accused of falsely refusing Contrast with my CT I waited 3 hours for my 2:00 appointment only to be questioned by my doctor on why I refused Contrast on my CT scan . No apology for a 3 hour delay in my appointment. By this time my blood pressure was way up. So I got a lecture on that . Fancy that , my blood pressure was up ?
