I do not, I repeat do NOT recommend anyone go see Dr. Swainey if seaking treatment at VCU in Richmond, VA. This is the reply I got from him after we were recently were transfered to his care, met him once for a run down on what my husbands situation was. After having trouble getting my husbands next appointments I sent him an email and this was his reply:
I hear your frustration. Things don't run smooth at Dalton or Stony Point. I think the most important thing in your husbands care is trust in your providers. His cancer is serious, and eventually he will die from it. You need to be able to trust that his care isn't getting compromised by any delays or other situations that develop. If you do not have that trust at VCU then by all means go somewhere else where you feel comfortable. I will talk with Gwen about what is happening with him and let you know what I find. Thank you for letting me know of your concern. Craig
