My husband and I will be moving to the Greenville/Spartanburg, SC area in the next few weeks and I am in urgent need of recommendations for hospitals and specific doctors names that we can transfer my husbands case to.   It seems like Gibbs Cancer Center may be our best bet as they are a comprehensive center and are affiliated with MD Anderson, but I'm not finding a melanoma specialist there.

Charlotte, NC would be a possibility as well.

Hi, My husband's doctor's are in Charlotte, NC at Levine Cancer Institute.  Dr. Asim Amin in a medical oncologist sjpecializing in melanoma.  He is wonderful.  Dr. Richard White is a surgical oncologist specializing in melanoma.  He is also wonderful.  They work closely together and are in touch with doctor's around the country regarding clinical trials.  I highly recommend them.  Wishing you both the best.

Hi Melissa,

Thank you for the recommendation - we will definitely consider Dr. Amin.   Even though Levine is an hour and a half from where we are moving to, my husband's daughter actually lives in Charlotte and is only 2 miles from this facility.   

If anyone else knows anyone in the Greenville/Spartanburg area please let me know.

Thanks!

I too am a patient of Dr. Amin's and I live in Asheville. It is well worth the drive to see this man and I've been very pleased with the whole Carolina's Health System.
