Looking for new Doc in Illinois

0

Hello,
My husband has metastatic melanoma currently in remission. We moved to a rural Illnois town Kansas. We are near the Indiana border about 2 hours from Indianapolis ,3 hours from the Chicago area and 21/2 hours from St. Louis, MO. We are wanting to find a good treatment center in the event the melanoma returns. He is going to see a local oncologist being that we are just in the testing follow up stage. But, his dermatologist recommended we see a melanoma center maybe in the Springfield, IL area. Does anyone know anything about Springfield or any other good treatment center near us? Doctor recommendations would be greatly appreciated also.
Thank you, karen

Karen,
I know of good oncologists in Chicago and the St. Louis area. Are you
looking for something closer? Also, check www.melanomainternational.org for
a listing of cancer centers.

I would look on the Melanoma Hope Network website as they accredit superior
centres

and breast cancer.

I feel he did an excellent thorough job.
If you have any questions or just need someone

I know what it is like to need a friend. I only check this

Thanks

My company has a facility in Springfield so I will try to give them
a call and see if they know of anyone in the area. My sister
works at a hospital in Quincy and I will ask her as well.

My thoughts and prayers are with you.
