    Dr Ueda was very curt and I did not feel she was really concerned about my problems.

    Explanations were at about my level of understanding. Since appointment was remote and local hospital is delivering imaging/ treatment all delays and potential delays are due to Providence rather than UCSF.

    I am concerned about having to wait two weeks for the tumor board to discuss my case. I am surprised the tumor board does not meet weekly or biweekly to support the growing number of patients at UCSF.
