My partner is living and working in Canberra, so I may choose to do the treatment in Canberra, any sister in Canberra may know a good oncologist?

Thanks,

Susan

Hi Susan

I can highly recommend Professor Robin Stuart-Harris in Canberra. Robin was my Medical Oncologist for my first BC 'journey' when we lived in Canberra. He is an excellent oncologist and a wonderful person.

If you decide to have your treatment in Canberra you shall be extremely well cared for by marvellous professionals which is very comforting.

I wish you the very best

Jane

Jane,

Thank you very much.

I am going to start chemo next week or so, my doctor from Brisbane referred me to an oncologist who is specialized on head and neck cancer and breast as well. The referee oncologist works in the same clicnic as Dr Stuart-Harris.

I think it's better to have an oncologist who is specialize on breast cancer as first interest so I am going to ask my surgery doctor to refer me to Dr Stuart-Harris or Dr Paul Craft there.

Hello Susan

I don't think to check the Australian page very often, as I have the Australian Sisters thread on my favourites!

I go to Prof Stuart-Harris, he's gorgeous! I've been seeing him for seven years now.

Are you doing your chemo here in Canberra? If so - PM me, I'm more than happy to meet up with you if you would like!

Trish
