I am more than happy to share, my dad was first being treated at Duke where he got the GTX ( I had to bring it up to the doctor, he didnt even know about it), however, the Dr. at Duke was not experienced with it and therefore administered it in the wrong sequence and wrong dosages to my dad. It was an old, old protocol and it made my dad very sick and was terrible for him.

However, we had a consult with Dr. Fine via phone and he told us the Duke doctor was doing it all wrong and basically poisioning and ODing my dad on the chemo. He recommended a doctor in our area that he had a relationship with and knew was experienced with GTX. We dropped the Duke doctor and went with this new guy and got on the right administration of the GTX and now the marker is down 50% after just one cycle. I recommend Dr. Fine all the way even for a consult if you dont live in NYC, we live in NC and he did a phone consult. He works in conjuction with our doctor in NC to treat my dad. That phone consult was the best $$ we ever spent!
