Topic: My new hero dr hershfeld at bruckner oncology
My husband completed 6 weeks of a clinical trial last month. They wanted him to continue but the pain from spine mets was so bad he could barely get out of the house . The pain specialist we see locally kept increasing his OxyContin and condone but still he only had relief a few hours a day. Not to mention the severe constipation. It got to the point that even a saline enema would not work.
Last week we went to see dr Hirsfeld about the trial and whe he heard about the level of pain and continued constipation he admitted Dan into the hospital. He's been there for 5 days now and his pain is being controlled and he's having regular bowel movements.
I can't thank Dr. H. enough. He took control and genuinely cares about his patients.
If anyone in the tristate area is looking for a great doc I strongly recommend dr hershfeld at bruckner oncology.
