Again, I believe my experience with Dr. Nagarajan and the staff of hematology/oncology, combined with CC Radiology, is why I am still alive today. After my liver was partially resected and my metastatic lymph condition diagnosed, I was told there was an 80% chance I'd be dead within five years. It's been almost 2.5 years since the initial diagnosis, and, at least for the moment, I am cancer free. With each passing six month clean CT scan, I am told the likelihood of reappearance declines. I attribute that new prognosis to Dr. Nagarajan the most.

Appointment with doctor was scheduled prior to labs. Labs were scheduled an hour after the appointment. The doctor could not see me without the lab results.

Once the nurse brought me in to the doctor he had to get the lab results in order to determine whether I would have chemo.
