Topic: The Value of a Good Physician
A common theme in many of the posts I read is that people are looking for a doctor or are dissatisfied with their current one. My wife, Kathleen, has a great oncologist and he has made it so much easier for her these past five years. Dr. Bloom is obviously an intelligent man but he is also not afraid to say "I don't know". We like that. He is very compassionate and funny so Kathleen always leaves his office with a smile.
There are good doctors out there and I encourage those who have not found one to keep looking. The most important thing for Kathleen was finding someone who she could relate to and who was caring and trustworthy. Finding that person has made a huge difference for her.
P.S. We were shocked to find out this week that Dr. Bloom just had successful surgery for colon cancer that was discovered during a routine colonoscopy. I think Kathleen is more concerned about him than herself.
