Was referred to Dr Good for mridian treatment of lymph node, very friendly and relaxed consultation arranged within 24hrs where everything was explained. Then over next few days he obtained approval from my insurer and early treatment start date at Genesis So thanks for all your help during what was a very stressful time for me
I found Dr James Good to be a warm caring professional man. He delivered sensitive information in an empathetic way. I really feel despite an awful diagnosis of inoperable pancreatic cancer he has my best interest at heart and was willing to leave no stone unturned to help me. He was always quick to communicate with me directly and very down to earth. He made me feel like I was a person and not a statistic to this disease.
My meeting with Dr Good was calming and he give me an overview of my scan results with layman explanations backed by solid medical explanation and reasoning. He discussed possible alternative future treatment plans and he said this was not the end of the road and there many things that could potentially . I felt assured Dr Good had my very best interest at heart and given hope for the future..
James is a pleasure to work with. I've received a level of care and understanding that I hadn't received before with other oncologists that I've encountered on my cancer journey. His ability to listen to the patient and come up with a plan that also considers my holistic needs, not just the medical ones, without compromising the treatment of the disease, is second to none. Recently, I was in an unfortunate position which required a last minute change of my planned treatment. James adapted to the situation and arranged a different type of treatment to suit my needs at the time. This really provided much needed relief in a stressful period of my life. James also has extensive knowledge about advanced radiotherapy treatment methods, from which I have recently benefited.
Dr James Good, took on my case for a pancreatic cancer secondary tumour in a lymph node next to my aorta using Meridan MRLinac directed radiotherapy treatment with great success. James, explained in detail the treatment and its risks and I felt totally confident that I was in safe hands throughout my procedure. In this respect, I totally recommend Dr James Good for cancer care radiotherapy as I have total trust in him.
