Many patients feel they have run into a wall with no other options in their community.  They are willing to travel but don't have the ability to make numerous trips.  In such cases we can review a summary of the history and key records in order to determine what, if any additional testing might be needed.  Things you should do:

  • Prepare a succinct chronology of your problem
  • Obtain and organize relevant test results.  For radiology tests you should obtain the actual images on a CD-ROM or flash drive.
  • Obtain copies of the dictated reports of any operations and the associated pathology reports.
  • For prostate cancer patients seeking a second opinion, please obtain the actual pathology slides.
