| Comments (0)

Michael Fisch, M.D., chair of M. D. Anderson's Department of General Oncology, was asked in a recent WebMD article on Farrah Fawcett's choice to seek cancer care in Germany to provide suggestions to patients considering leaving the country for cancer care. In the article he recommends that patients:

•    Define and prioritize goals
•    Discuss those goals with a doctor
•    Don't take good care for granted
•    Consider their own backyard
•    Recognize their vulnerability



In this video, Dr. Fisch expands on his thoughts about making the choice to explore alternative care outside of the United States. .
