A monkey could have done the job better. Upon my screening the Nurse asked me if I had ever had any surgery... I told her that I had my thyroid removed. The Nurse never asked me why I had my Thyroid removed 5 months ago...(If she had I would have told her I had cancer.) Then she proceeded to question me about everything except for the pertinent questions. Dr. McCallion came in. He reminded me of a monkey. When he opened his mouth and began to speak, I suddenly felt like I was transported into a B-rated movie that was something like Little Shop of Horrors... I should have ran!! After Enduring this pointless exam for a min.. I decided to volunteer my recent cancer history. (You would think that writing it down in the Patient Medical History during the registration process would have been enough.)He than had his immediate diagnosis... "My Symptoms were caused by the Radioactive Iodine that was given to me post Surgery." I opted out of the normal protocol and chose not to have the RAI done. I told him about all of my research about my type of cancer (Papillary Carcinoma) and how it is unaffected by that procedure and how my regular MD agreed. He was suddenly became an expert in oncology, and proceeded to lecture me. Why I did not leave the office I do not know... I just Smiled and decided that the Nodules in my throat cheek and tongue could be examined by someone else... I made sure the exam finished quickly after by agreeing with is next stupid diagnosis. . Never again will I return to that office. If you value your life or a loved ones life I suggest that you stay away!
