That's a good question. I do feel it is important to feel comfortable with the doctors and team taking care of your (or your husbands) health. When you are dealing with a fairly serious disease, such as stage 4 cancer, I do think that getting another teams perspective is reasonable. Not all cancer centers use the same approach, and one may have options not available at another. I wish you well
