"I felt medical oncologist was not helpful at this point in my stage of breast cancer as he stated he cannot do anything for me until after surgery and recovery. And his knowledge of my case seemed rushed as he had just reviewed as I waited an extra 45 mins to hour before he finally showed up. Granted he may have gotten behind but no one came in to let me know the status. I had to ask and search after 30 mins of waiting time in the room. He also indicated the decisions of the breast surgery was between the breast surgeon and I and that he has no say. However, since I walked into the door that's all everyone has been telling that your medical oncologist has the last say. I just don't feel confident in his abilities of my care as I did with the radiologist oncologist. it was disappointing to say the least but I do want to give the medical oncologist his pat on the shoulder as he indicated what my MRI images were. Now that was super helpful."
