      Hi,

      We found our integrative oncologist through a recommend from our family doctor in NYC.

      After meeting with him, doing some research and speaking with a few of his patients we decided to work with him.

      Here is an article about one of his patients, who is still alive and cancer free.

      If you'd like his contact info I can pass it on, he will do phone consults if he can get a copy of your medical records.

      you can email me at [email protected]

       

      We're doing the BRAF/MEK trial on recommendation from our oncologist as he tells us it is showing similar promise to other BRAF trials.

      fingers crossed.
