"Diagnosis and treatment for bowel cancer."
Posted by lynxgh88 (as ),
My initial diagnosis was at the Cohuna Hospital and, as always the help and care there was first class.
The follow-up with surgeon Mr Malcolm and all of the staff at Epworth, Hawthorn, was exceptional and very supportive. The nurses were very caring and friendly.
Follow-up Oncology consultations and chemo has mostly been at Kerang Hospital. The care of Dr Rob and Justin has again been very caring and reassuring. The chemo services, led by Cindy, supported by Hayley and Karen, have all been positive and friendly, which is important when going through treatment such as this, given that there are regular 3-4 hourly session on chemo. At all times, I have been treated with respect and courtesy, and have found these people as high class operators.
My only gripe is the fact that my oncology referral expired after 3 months and required a visit to the Cohuna Clinic, where that simple document could only be supplied appointment charge, in order that oncology services could continue to be bulk billed.
