Wasn't there a list of OM docs on this site? I see the generic melanoma map on the left nav, but I thought we had our own. No?
Renee @ Jeff has a patient looking for an onco near Alabama or Columbus, Georgia.
Here is the list.
It may need some updating though. There are other internal medicine oncologists doing systemic treatments nowadays.
None in those areas, as far as I know though.
For systemic OM treatments we cannot be very picky. The utility of the treatment then comes before the location one resides. There are options of staying with host families though or in cbaritable lodges.
An important criteria is also, id no mets were found yet, to have the right oncologist who supports the most comprehnsive screening methods so earliest detection is possible. That varies a lot.
Please also visit this page, Find an Ocular Melanoma Specialist, for links to physicians who specialize in both primary and systemic ocular melanoma, as well as a link to other resources.
Dr. Matthew Wilson at The Hamilton Eye Institute in Memphis TN. Outstanding institute centrally located in southern US. This doctor performs about 10 radiation plaque implants a month.
