Review for thesecondopinion, San Francisco, CA, USA

Rating: 4 stars  

I joined the board after attending six memorial services in seven weeks for friends, family members and neighbors all of whom had died from some form of cancer. I wanted to work with an agency that directly touches patients lives across all types of cancer and provides significant, immediate benefits.

TSO does just that. The physicians are passionate about helping patients and their families understand and make informed decisions regarding their disease and various treatment options.

The organization has been slow to grow and expand, which was another key attraction to me as there is much potential and the services should be easily replicated across other geographic regions. My background lends itself to this type of challenge, thus I hope that we can spur some growth changes so that many more cancer patients will benefit from the TSO model.
