Dr. Chandra had clearly prepared for our meeting by reviewing clinical notes and lab results from my local oncology team. She explained why she concurred with the recommendation for radiotherapy, explained likely side-effects and immunology options for CSCC. She provided information bulletins that were clear and written for a layman, like me. She answered questions simply and clearly and she referred me to a radiation oncologist for further specifics about radiotherapy for my cancer.
