Because depression in brain cancer patients is a common but often overlooked condition, oncologists should regularly screen tumor patients for depression, according to an article in the current issue of CNS Oncology. The journal is published by Future Medicine, an imprint of Future Science Group. The authors also propose that more studies be completed to explore the efficacy of anti-depression treatments, as well as the value of depression biomarkers for future brain tumor research.
Breast cancer that occurs in young women is likely to be more aggressive and to require more intensive types of therapy with increased risk of long-term treatment-related toxicities. The unique and significant challenges and psychosocial concerns that women under 40 years of age with breast cancer face are discussed in a special article published in Journal of Adolescent and Young Adult Oncology (JAYAO), a multidisciplinary peer-reviewed publication from, Mary Ann Liebert, Inc., publishers.
I was having severe back pain and had difficulty standing, sitting, turning over in bed and walking. I had seen other doctors but was only offered epidurals which lasted a few months and then the pain came back. I was referred to Dr Armin by a friend. I made an appointment and he sent me for tests after which I returned to see him. He originally thought he would need to do major surgery but as a result of the tests he could see that I should benefit from a less complicated outpatient procedure. Within a mater of a couple of weeks the surgery was completed. I went into the hospital in pain and after surgery I could immediately tell the pain was gone. He was honest with me about the fact that there is no way to tell how long these results will last. I may eventually need a more major surgery but it has been over four months and I am still free of pain.
Dr. Armin has made me feel human again. After years of carpel tunnel issues I finally decided to seek help. I ended up needing surgery – which is what I didn’t want to do – but I agreed because I was at that point where I would do anything to get rid of the numb tingling feeling. Now I am ‘like new’ and have tons more improvement in my hands and wrists. Thank you Dr. Armin. You are amazing. I highly recommend Dr. Armin and his sweet office staff.
I am living and walking testimony of the wonderful work performed by Dr. Sean Armin. When I met Dr. Armin in October, 2011, I was in severe pain and wheelchair bound. He took one look at my MRI's and he instantly reassured me that, after he operated on me, I would walk again. His sense of certainty made me feel confident that I was in good hands and that I was going to be all right. As he spoke to me while I was being prepared for surgery and as I was entering the operating room, he only reinforced my confidence in him.
I felt comfortable immediately entering Dr. Armin's office. I saw and heard him talking to a patient in the most natural and kind way. Dr Armin was great at explaining the surgical procedure to me and listening to my many questions. From day one I knew I was in safe hands. He has not lost the art of Dr./patient care, concern and healing. I believe confidence in your doctor is half your recovery. Also, Nancy is the Best receptionist ever!! She is the one to get it done! She is worth her weight in gold!! Kudos!!
Dr. Armin was the one who fought for me. I had been in pain for 8 months due to a fall where I hurt my lower back which gave me pain with any movement or lying down so basically pain 24/7. I had done everything I was told to do by multiple doctors with the insurance guidelines they were saddled by. After my visit with Dr. Armin the insurance company wanted me to do 3 more months of physical therapy which would not have helped and could've made me even worse. Dr. Armin fought on my behalf with multiple phone calls and visits to finally get my surgery approved. It only took him one month to get me approved when I had been in serious escalating pain for 8. The surgery was a huge success and I was standing nearly pain free in a few days. THANK YOU DR. ARMIN FOR FIGHTING FOR ME! and yes, I am doing my walking
Dr. Armin is great! His energy and passion for his specialty is inspiring. He is very understanding, attentive, and really cares about his patients. His office staff is very welcoming and really makes sure their visitors are taken care of and comfortable.
