If you're concerned that going with another doctor wouldn't be worth it due to the need for more xrays please reconsider this.

Your doc sounds similar to my dad's first oncologist! Please seek a doctor who cares about his or her patients. There are too many good ones to accept mediocre (or less it sounds) care.

First oncologist we had never even talked with us at all - probably trying to hide the fact that he's a doorknob! His PA handles all of his patients and other docs visit his patients in the hospital- a true doorknob. Run from a doc who doesn't give you answers and eloborate when asked. Remember that you deserve optimal treatment by a knowledgeable, and CARING doc. Life is too short to spend with a doorknob-particularly when dealing with your health concerns. I wish you the best.
