An important part of good health care is a good relationship between you and your doctor. You must be able to communicate well with each other so your needs are met. Cancer treatment often means that you will have more than one doctor. Sometimes other health specialists are involved, too. You may get facts from many sources. However, it is a good idea to choose one doctor to be your main source of information. You can turn to this doctor with your concerns. This doctor may or may not be the one you see most often. Only you can make that choice, and this information can help.
