Today I had to say goodbye to my wonderful, caring, beautiful oncologist, Dr. Komal Jhaveri. Three weeks ago she informed me that she was leaving NYU for Memorial Sloane Kettering Cancer Center. I think this is a big career move so I couldn’t be happier for her.
However, on the first day we met, she informed me that our relationship was “for life.” I took that to heart. I can follow her to Sloane if I want to but she suggested that I remain at NYU for the duration of my clinical trial, until November, and see how I gel with my new oncologist. I agreed that this was a fair solution, even if it’s one that I don’t like so much.
So, goodbye for now, Dr. Jhaveri! Thank you for all you have done for me and my family.
If you are at Sloane or will be going to Sloane, I highly suggest you look up Dr. Jhaveri. And tell her Carrie said, “Hi!”
