I feel that Doctor Trenkner had made his decision about my treatment before he ever stepped in the door to meet me. During our visit, I told him important information. He did not chart this information, and as a result caused my treatment to be delayed due to his not paying attention to the details. I don't feel he is doing what is best for me, but what is best for his pocketbook. My thyroid cancer had returned, and I asked how big is was. He wouldn't tell me. He didn't tell me until I went through all of my treatments. Had I known the size, I would have known there were alternative treatments that didn't put me at as much risk to future health problems and now an even larger likelihood that the cancer will return yet again.
