I go to TX Onc. My experience has been good. I was going to Austin Cancer Center, but my MO moved to TX Onc last yr...so, I can't speak from much experience overall, other than my MO, since I just go for follow-ups now.

Look up the Hill Country Warriors thread and you may find others. We get together once in a while, if that is something you are interested in, pls do! Everyone is welcome:)

I went to Texas Oncology for radiation and would not hesitate to go back if needed. For an organization which treats large numbers of people I found the cars to be very personalized.

Thanks for your input! I've since discovered that although I could find an MO at Texas Oncology who accepts my insurance, the actual facility does not. I keep running into this.
