Your Voice

By Eric Berglund, M.D.
The Physician's Cancer Chemotherapy Drug Manual saves me valuable time on the hospital ward. Just this week I had a patient who required salvage therapy for non Hodgkins lymphoma and I knew the regimen I wanted to use but needed to confirm the exact drug dosages. Not only did this program provide that information but it also cited a reference for me to check and provide to the hospital pharmacy. Instead of a significant delay in therapy, I was confidently able to proceed with treatment in a timely fashion.
