      I reviewd Dr. Jon Richards of Niles, melanoma specialist.   He was Will's former doctor, before we switched to Howard Kaufmann of Rush.  So hopefuly MRF gets the $ for my contribution, because in my humble view, it will be the most Richards has done to help melanoma patients in quite a while.

      Sorry – just my angry opinion.

        I was shocked to read another review of Dr. Richards.  I hadn't seen it before.  It describes exactly the sort of problems we had with the practice – overbooked, not checking blood tests, etc.  I don't know if it's appropriate to comment on this here or not but out of concern to anyone in the Chicago area who is looking for a melanoma specialist, if you want details on why I feel  so adamant about this, email me.

        I went on the site to review Howard Kaufman at Rush….and I can't find him anywhere, and I can't add him.  AMAZING.  There.  Now I have my review.  If I could review him on that sight I would.

        Dr. Kaufman was who I ended up taking Will to.  Unfortunately, it was too late by then.  But the team at Rush are amazing.

        Does Kaufman/Rush have current clinical trial programs?  Are they on top of the current research?  Not using "old" drugs like interferon/interluekin?  Do they offer vaccines?  TIL cell therapy?  Lymph node sonography?  Just trying to find best place in Chicago area.  Wondering about Rush, Northwestern, U of Chicago, Loyola.
