Questions and Answers

  • At which stage should I consult an oncology specialist?
    The oncologist is the doctor who manages the treatment of the cancer patient therefore the best time would be when there is absolute proof of a cancerous tumor and an estimation of distribution in the body.
  • What should I bring to the meeting?
    The patient should take part, if possible, in the meeting. As an experienced oncologist I am able to conduct the consultation in a sensitive and appropriate manner. Medical documentation and written material are also important. All documentation the initial diagnosis should be brought. There is great significance in bringing the pathology test results. I advise you to prepare questions and come accompanied by one or more people.

    The meeting can occur without the patient present but I feel it is important for him/her to be present so that they can hear everything first hand from a professional

    For the purpose of consultation for tourists, the required tests will be in coordination with me before their visit. Whoever accompanies the patient will receive (based on preliminary information) a meticulous examination plan with all the information they need before the consultation.
  • Is there a place for complementary medical care with oncological care?
    There are several approaches in regard to complementary medical care as it is not clinically proven. I am supportive of these treatments as an addition to proven and required treatment. Complementary care must be given by trained professionals who are chosen wisely.

    Information that is derived from these tests is critical for the determination of the clinical approach. This information is helpful as to indicating the patients prosects of healing and life expectancy. It influences the choice of treatment for each patient.
