Personally I think he should have requested a more current set of X-Ray, MRI or CAT-SCAN in order to allow for a more confident access of my condition. Most Neuro-surgeons require pictures that are no older than 30 days. My pictures were (at the VERY least) several months old.

Dr Holland was not familiar with either the radiation therapy i was interested in (there is a clinic in north seattle) nor the surgery technique that is very successful for this type of brain cancer. [...] and [...] and other institutions have been doing both for nearly ten years.
