This doctor seems intelligent and I believe he is knowledgeable and competent in diagnosis, etc. However, I chose not to continue seeing him after three visits. I found him smug and insensitive. I have Stage 4 cancer, and at each visit, he seems to have made a point of letting me know that no matter what treatment option I pursue, I will (in his opinion) inevitably die, as there is simply no hope. This is certainly not what one needs to hear when battling a serious illness. And I am not even convinced that it is the case. Currently, my cancer is in remission and I have no symptoms at all. If a doctor feels unable to help a patient, I believe he or she should then refer the patient elsewhere. To have a patient keep returning to the office over and over for checkups in which the patient is routinely reminded of his/her "lost cause" status and told that all treatment plans will likely end the same--this is just cruel.
My husband was diagnosed with Stage 4 lung cancer at 40 years old and passed away within 6 months. Dr. Kortmansky was one of the few physicians that showed tremendous compassion for my family. I can only imagine the demands placed on a doctor's time at Memorial Sloan Kettering but Dr. Kortmansky never rushed us out of his office. Although we sometimes waited a little longer to see him he spent the time to answer all our questions and address any concerns. He was always honest about my husband's prognosis, even if it was hard to handle, but this enabled us to better understand treatment options and compare them to quality of life considerations. Even after it was determined that treatment would no longer be productive, Dr. Kortmansky remained a source of support for both my husband and our family. My experience with Dr. Kortmansky was one of the few positives to come out of this terrible tragedy.
