    There aren't any of their doctors leading in cancer research...

    Several years ago my eldest stepdaughter (An Oncology Nurse) discovered that she had skin cancer. Fortunately is was of the easily treated type and stage 0, but knowing there was an increased risk of additional skin cancer in the future, she opted to seek out the best in the field.

    She didn't find them at CTCA, that is a given...

    Instead following the recommendations of the doctors she worked with, she went to Dr. Allan Halpern at Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center for a whole-body photograph to assist in the detection of changes in her moles.. Using the computerized digital imaging system at MSKCC to monitor her moles the program creates a baseline digital photographic record of her moles which is compared with future scans for early diagnosis. Dr. Halpern was one of the pioneers in the research and use of this system.

    I'll go all in on a bet that CTCA doesn't have anyone of that caliber on their staff... Any takers?
