HI everyone

I hope you are all well, I'm from the prostate cancer forum but I have a family member who is looking into getting a second opinion in NYC and I was wondering if anyone can recommend a medical oncologist preferably MSKCC or similar. She is not based in the USA so if she was to look into treatment over here we would want it to be with the best! (Who doesn't!)

Thanks in advance for any replies

Hi Doire, unfortunately this is a really slow forum. I suggest that you check with cancer. From what Pratoman in the PC forum says, this is a very active site so perhaps you can get some recommendations there. I suggested this site to a lady with BC & she says its a great site.

I am so sorry to read about your family member. Cancer is a dx no one ever wants to hear, but very much curable.

Take care.
