2I was already very frightened and unsure of my reaction to the treatments.
So, when Dr. Gerald Miletello at Baton Rouge General Medical Center told me I could take my 12 infusion treatments right there at the Oncology Clinic, I was relieved to know I would not have to enter the hospital each week.
It was comforting to have nurses around I was familiar with. Being in that surrounding made it more personable. Also, just think how patients felt when Dr. Miletello and other physicians would make a visit to check on us while undergoing the infusions.
Knowing my doctor was right down the hall should an emergency arise gave me confidence. I will close this by saying I hope insurance companies will allow cancer patients to have treatment where they feel comfortable and where their doctor recommends.
