Description

Before our MBC diagnosis, many of us saw our doctors once or twice a year or even less often. And most visits were likely routine check-ups or focused on a particular issue with a relatively straightforward solution. But MBC changes all that. It throws each of us into an unfamiliar world--with its own language, new and complex information shared in high stakes appointments and a relationship with our oncologist that immediately becomes one of the most important relationships in our life. 

This episode of Our MBC Life, the first in our MBC 101 series, includes perspectives, insights and suggestions from both sides of the critical doctor-patient relationship. 

Our panel of patients share their own experiences—good and bad—and what they’ve learned about navigating the unique communication challenges of this intense and intimate partnership. Dr. Lidia Schapira, medical oncologist and professor of medicine at Stanford University School of Medicine  talks with  our hosts Victoria Goldberg, Martha Carlson, and Kate Pfitzer] about what makes a good doctor-patient relationship. 

The Our MBC Life team is grateful to Dr. Lidia Schapira and to our fellow MBC patients for generously sharing their time, their experience and their wisdom in this episode.
