I am writing this review due to the last request of a dear friend. They passed, not as a result of Dr. negligence, but rather the aggressive and unresponsive cancer. That being said, this review is a result of the post slash and burn protocol. Following the surgery, radiation, chemo, there was little in the way of support. Follow up visits were never with the same assistant, and in fact there was little to no direct physician contact. As my friend continued to decline, many subsequent visits with various staff resulted in much more suffering due to medication reactions, and the undiagnosed reemergence of the cancer. as a result of never seeing the same person twice, there was a complete lack of continuity of care. When you are facing this challenge, that is a serious deficit in quality as well as kindness of care. I wrote this at my friend's request, to aid individuals facing this challenge to consider aftercare and continuity of care and support, as important as the cancer protocol itself.
Dr. Cox provided radiation treatment to me when I had stage 2B cervical cancer with metastasis to two bilateral pelvic lymph nodes in 2006/2007. I appreciated his optimism and sense of humor, as well as his excellent medical care. He was a light in that dark, dark time of my life, and I am grateful to him for helping to save my life.
When it comes to curing and treating cancers, Dr. Shannon Cox is magic. He is a master of blending the patient and familyâs psychology into his radiation treatment plan to achieve the maximum success for his patients. His in-depth medical expertise and success stories serve as an apparatus to uplift his patientsâ spirit/hope, which turns into energy and cooperation necessary to succeed in treatment. I personally witnessed his magic in my own very dear mother who calls him âmy saviorâ. For anyone who knows astrology, he is the Jupiter who brings you faith, luck and hope.
