I know that it is highly recommended that if possible to go to an academic medical center for treatments, etc. I want to pose a question though. I have been seen for the past not quite four years at an academic facility and am now being changed to a third oncologist. It gets to be pretty annoying that you get used to somebody and they leave. Is this a common practice because these doctors are just starting out on their own after medical school? Don't get me wrong this center has done very well by me but they just changed doctors again and I don't really have a choice in the matter if I continue there.
Since I am only being seen for 6 month follow-ups because I have been NED for almost 4 years, would it be reasonable to have my PCP do the follow-ups after this upcoming one? Sorry if this seems trivial but I would prefer some stability if possible. thanks --mikem
