Flat affect, very blunt

My brother recently passed away from gastric cancer, he lasted a little more than a year. Linitis Plastica has a grim prognosis, because it is usually diagnosed in the late stages of the disease. I credit his year of survival to the diligent oncology staff from UCLA, who advised us on what treatments to seek and ask for, from Dr. Polonsky. Having the UCLA staff , as a second opinion source, gave us a little more time with my brother.

FAMILY MEMBER DEAD DUE TO PLAIN NEGLIGENCE!

BESIDE HIS COLD, FROSTY, COCKY DEMEANOR, HE IS VERY SARCASTIC, AND SHOWS ABSOLUTELY NO COMPASSION FOR HIS PATIENTS WHAT SO EVER. BEING THAT HE IS AN "ONCOLOGIST" ONE AS A PATIENT WOULD EXPECT BETTER TREATMENT. IF YOU ARE BEING "TREATED" BY THIS "DOCTOR" PLEASE SEEK FOR A SECOND OPPINION!!! HE DOES NOT PROVIDE PATIENTS WITH THE PROPER FOLLOW CARE. MY FAMILY MEMBER/PATIENT WAS TREATED FOR STAGE 2 CANCER, WENT TO FOLLOW UP APPOINTMENTS, AND WAS TOLD HE/SHE WAS "CANCER FREE". A COUPLE OF WEEKS AFTER THAT BEING SAID, PATIENT WAS DIAGNOSED WITH STAGE 4 TERMINAL CANCER WHILE BE TREATED AT AN E.R. FACILITY!! IT WAS MENTIONED TO ME BY ANOTHER PHYSICIAN FROM THE HOSPITAL THAT PATIENT SHOULD HAVE HAD A P.E.T. OR CAT SCAN AS A FOLLOW UP.PATIENT EXPIRED SHORTLY AFTER DIAGNOSIS. OOOOPS!!! JUST SOMEONE'S LIFE; RIGHT DOC??!! THANK YOU FOR "CARE" DR. POLONSKY!
