What would I do if I have cancer and want to talk to my doctor between visits?

Find the right Dr. I believe that communication is one of the best tools that we have to help cancer patients. Therefore, it is a priority to make myself available by phone and/or email daily for the many questions that arise. Many doctors share this philosophy and the methods for communication are only growing--it will not be difficult to find a doctor that takes this approach.
Call the office! Talk to one of the doctors staff and see what might be possible--some doctors will call you on the phone, others email. If the doctor isn't responsive to this in some way, then i would think about whether this doctor is the right one for you. Patients deserve to have a way to have questions answered!
