I recently came down with the flu and called Dr. Schumer on his personal number about worsening symptoms. Though he was away on vacation, he recognized concerning conditions and ordered numerous scans and a biopsy at a local medical facility. These revealed a malignant tumor in my lung area. With unceasing, tireless effort Joy Tritsch arranged all the necessary scans, tests, and medical insurance approvals for me to be admitted as a patient at Cleveland Clinic. The Clinic diagnosed the tumor as a thymic carcinoma and recommended treatment. In a little over a month, I went from flu to cancer diagnosis to beginning treatment. All through this process, Dr. Schumer and Joy Tritsch provided steadfast support and constant encouragement.
