it's good that you have an appointment set up for next week. Is this an appointment with a specific person, and if so, do you know their name? If it's with an Oncologist on the Main Campus of Cleveland Clinic, then you might be able to find their name and other details about them (ratings, certifications, etc.) by using the link below. Click on the link and wait a few seconds for the search to be completed. (193 oncologists of one type or another there).Oncologists, Main Campus, Cleveland Clinic
If you want to check out the Board Certification for the oncologist you will be seeing, or even your current oncologist, you can use the link below. On the form displayed in the link, enter the last name of the doctor, select Ohio as the state, and select Medical Oncology as the specialty.Certification Matters
For your appointment next week, I think there are several issues that need to be addressed:
1. What was the MSI status of your primary tumor?
2. What was the KRAS mutation status of your primary tumor?
3. What was the BRAF mutation status of your primary tumor?
This information is needed in order to determine which treatment regimens are still available to you as well as which clinical trials you may be qualified for.
