Any experiences moving and having to find new doctors, oncologists, etc.

I'm interested if anyone has moved in the midst of being diagnosed with lung cancer and how to go about finding new oncologist.  Any related experience of interest to me.

I'd suggest waiting for your biopsy results before you start looking for a new doctor.  You don't even know yet what you are dealing with.  And, as I mentioned, there are a ton of good cancer treatment hospitals in the Philadelphia area. University of Pennsylvania and Fox Chase are both highly regarded.  I was treated (and very happy with my experience) at the M.D. Anderson Center in Camden, right across the river.  If you wind up doing chemo or other drug therapy, chances are you can find someplace closer to home to actually get the treatments, if you don't want to travel that far.
