    How was your appointment with Dr. Finn?

    Apr 08, 2020
    Today was my first visit with Dr. Finn and I couldn't be more pleased. I had been referred by my Oncologist for a 2nd opinion and clinical trial evaluation for my diagnosis of StageIV Esophageal Cancer. First of all because of the Covid-19 restrictions my wife was not going to be allowed to come in with me. I simply asked, and he allowed her to. Dr. Finn was totally open, honest, and engaging. He explained clearly and consicely his plan moving forward. There is no cure for my cancer, but drew the analogy of Diabetes, no cure, but can be a manageable chronic condition that I could live with. He left us happy and hopeful and I look forward to fighting this battle with Dr. Finn in my corner.
