I just wanted to pop in to say when we had our first visit to Cincy for the complete battery of aerodigestive tests we got a pretty extensive written report of all the doctors' observations and suggestions. It took a while to get it, though, and I remember frantically calling the nurses several times to figure out what was going on. At the time I was desperate to find out what they'd learned and what our timeline was procedures, surgeries, etc., so I was not very patient.
Also, we have been seeing Dr. Cotton for several years now (pre- and post- LTP) and while he's not going to linger and ask you about baseball scores, he's very to-the-point and has always been friendly. This time around, he even joked with us for a bit while in the patient consult room. I was so surprised that he lingered and joked I couldn't even come up with a witty comeback. Ha.
We usually stay at the Garfield Suites. It's not everyone's favorite because it's older and right downtown, but I really like it. The rooms are huge, the room service is good and affordable, and everyone there is very, very nice.
