When local attorney Hilton Conger was diagnosed with prostate cancer he weighed all available treatment options carefully.When he showed up in Dr. Quinton Cancel’s (M.D., Duke University School of Medicine, Durham, NC; General Surgery Internship, Duke University Medical Center; Urological Surgery Residency, Duke University Medical Center; Member, American Urological Association) office at Cookeville Regional Medical Center, Cancel was somewhat astonished.“I was really surprised to see him in my office,” Cancel said of his first meeting with Conger. “He had a record from Vanderbilt, where he was diagnosed in 2009.“I looked at all his charts and couldn’t figure out what he was doing here, because he was in the Vanderbilt system, had been diagnosed by a Vanderbilt doctor, and counseled on surgery.” Cancel continued.
