The purpose of this research survey is to help understand your opinion about how your primary care doctor (family doctor or general internist) can provide the best care for you as a cancer survivor.
The information collected in this survey is confidential and the researchers will not be able to identify who is filling out the information. In the report of this study, the respondents (you) will not be recognizable and all personal health information will be protected.
