Sorry, for some reason I assumed your onc was a "she". I forgot to ask what you are taking now.
I go to Dr. Louis Letendre, http://www.mayoclini...o/10182560.html (sorry, the insert link is not working for me - please copy and paste in your browser). I only see him once a year now and am mostly followed by my local onc but he tells me that Dr. Letendre reads all of his reports and they talk regularly so I'm pleased with the level of communication. Plus, every time I've called him (not many) we've connected almost immediately. I realize that he sees people far more ill than I so I don't bug him too much - it's enough to know I can if I need to.
Frank also started at Mayo, I don't know if he still goes or not, he is quite a bit further away than either of us. Mayo is about 1.5 - 2 hrs. from Mpls. and it's never a good drive in winter. My appt. is always in February!
The only concern I have with Dr. Warlick is that she specializes in transplant; otherwise you could certainly see what she has to say. (Although I would hope that most docs realize that transplant is the last option for anything).
I wouldn't wait too long because it generally isn't a good sign when the trend for PCR is heading up.
Let us know how it goes!
