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.

      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 literally is my partner in my care of my NETS cancer. As a RN he treats me with professional courtesy, dignity and respect. I have total trust in the decisions we make together and the direction of our plan of care. Top Notch. He better not retire.
