I acknowledge the fact this disease is virtually untreatable; however, Gemzar is an approved FDA drug. My father took the six treatments with no luck but some have found benefit. This situation as described may not warrant trying it because of cost (approximately $3000/treatment) and the stage of the disease. I feel this would be an appropriate response from a competent professional vice the response given. I would appreciate your feedback as this lack of sensitivity does not appear to uphold the high standards of this profession.
