I am possibly looking for a new MO for long-term monitoring. Alternatively, if anyone has a recommendation for the north Houston area, I'm interested in hearing about them. Thanks!

Texas357, I had my radiation at Texas Oncology with a RO whose practice is in San Marcos and New Braunfels. Should I have gone to an MO everyone (from friends to PCP to BS) spoke very highly of a MO in New Braunfels at Texas Oncology. Hope you find an equally strong recommendation!

Feel free to PM me if you have more specific questions.

Thanks! I'm in the north Houston area and I can't find any rankings, reviews for the nearest Texas Oncology office.
