Topic: CC patients in Georgia/southeast

Although I am living in NJ at the moment, I am from Atlanta and have heard great things about Dr. George Daneker who is a specialist in hepato-billiary cancers. He was recommended to me by one of Atlanta's most highly regarded gynecologic oncologists, Dr. Benedict Benigno. The website of his group practice is listed below, it will take you to his profile:

phone number 404-252-6118

I hope this may be of help to someone. I remember that there is one woman from Canton, GA on this board. If you ever need a second opinion I would suggest contacting this doctor.

Hi Sarah!

I'm the woman from Canton GA!  Thanks for the info on Dr. Daneker.  Based on my research I'm getting the most up to date care I could get.  Do you know anyone that has been treated by Dr. Daneker?

Currently I am less than 2 weeks away from my second attempt at liver resection at Emory.  So far I feel like I have had great doctors put in my path to help me.  Everything I've been reading about on this web site and others regarding the latest treatments, my Emory doctors have been doing.  But it is always good to have another doctor in the hip pocket, so to speak.

I read Dr. Daneker's bio on the website you gave, and his credentials are VERY similar to the surgical oncologist I am seeing at Emory, Dr. David Kooby.  I feel I am in very good hands with Dr. Kooby and the other doctors I see at Emory.  I highly recommend Emory if anyone with this crazy cancer is in the SE region.

Thanks again!
