My local doctor told me he could no longer help me, saying he had done all he could do. He suggested I go to a teaching hospital. But, I chose City of Hope, and I met Dr. Nakamura. I liked everything I saw and everyone I met. However, my insurance would not allow me to go to City of Hope. Dr. Nakamura kept in touch with my local doctor for a year. That was very impressive. I switched insurance at my first opportunity. I feel that is what saved my life.
When I go back for doctor visits, I always have so much hope for those that are going through their treatment.
