What to Insist on in a Cancer Doctor

Going through cancer treatments is a very scary proposition. What makes it even more so is finding yourself loaded with questions, but not having a place to turn to get some solid, trustworthy answers. While the internet can shed some light if you know how to vet your sources, it’s best to talk with an expert who also understands your unique case.

This is where a good cancer doctor comes into play. The very best will make sure every question you have is answered as completely and knowledgeably as possible.

How can you make sure you’re working with a doctor who will go above and beyond to put your mind at rest inasmuch as it is possible under the circumstances? Look for these things when selecting the doctor who will oversee your treatments:

Expertise – This is an absolute must. You want to make sure you’re working with a doctor who has a solid track record for treating patients with your form of cancer. If your doctor is newer to the field, that’s OK, too. Just make sure, however, that he or she works in a practice that’s backed by lots of experience.

A solid practice – The best doctors tend to surround themselves by other experts in the field. In addition, their office staff, nursing staff and others are also considered experts. The collective knowledge means finding someone to properly answer questions should not be a problem.

A statement of compassion – Doctors who put their patients first tend to make that very clear by offering statements of compassion their patients can read. That means they say up front they’re willing and ready to answer questions, treat patients with respect, and do what they can to alleviate fears about what to expect about treatments, prognosis, and more.

Finding a good cancer doctor is an important step in fighting back against the disease. If you’re not comfortable asking a doctor questions, be wary about the choice.
