Nobody really likes doing it, but too bad. It's a potential life or death situation. I discussed it with my surgical team early on and they agreed to do everything they can to streamline things should it ever reach that point. They know it's not a reflection on their abilities. It's a matter of having the tools and technology at their disposal to do different things. They are far more limited than places like City of Hope, UCLA, Anderson, MSK, etc.
The real problem is that Kaiser Permanente is an HMO and as such self contained. It's a lot easier just going down 2 floors from oncology to radiology than traveling all over the city to get 2 things done.
