This gentleman had Stage IV melanoma with metastases to the brain. He had extensive treatments and his life was saved but the biggest problem, he told me, “Was the clerical and billing side. The paperwork and scheduling was horrible.” He summarized his very complicated tour through the healthcare system as follows: “the clinical side was wonderful, the administrative a disaster.”
