Husband's oncologist suggested Dana Farber or Memorial Sloan Kettering for his second opinion. Husband is not inclined to travel to NYC so plans on getting an assessment from Dana Farber. However, when I spoke to my own primary care physician (in Massachusetts) about the choices, he suggested Massachusetts General Hospital instead. He said that he has a number of patients with cancer who have done remarkably well with treatment there.
Does anyone have any opinions about Dana Farber and/or Mass General?
