After 3 weeks of being given little information at home and a botched biopsy, I went to Mayo Clinic in Rochester. Within 6 hrs. I knew what I was up against. I had a fantastic team of surgeons and my oncologist whom I had for 18 yrs. was the best physician I have ever had in my life. Unfortunately he retired. I highly recommend one do research before choosing a facility or doctor. Mayo Clinic is 4 hrs. from home but I managed my appts. and drove every three months for follow-up. I don’t think I would be alive today had it not been for the excellent care I received at the clinic. My grandparents and parents went to the clinic starting back in the early days when there was a rooming house and one room clinic. Transportation back then was by train.
