Hi Dr. Turner,
I've got a few questions for you...if that's okay! 😀
1. What are your thoughts on extended Carboplatin therapy (6 dose vs. standard 4 dose therapy)?
2. What are your thoughts about the herbal chemotherapeutic agent Neoplasene? Would/could you pair that with a traditional chemotherapeutic agent?
3. Are you a proponent of blending eastern and western medicine to treat cancer? Are there any eastern modalities and/or supplements that you would recommend?
Thank you for taking the time to visit with us/answer our questions!!
