Dan Hurley, MD is an otolaryngologist in Arizona who has been diagnosed with a rare and fatal form of cancer. While he was preparing to receive chemotherapy, his insurance carrier denied a PET scan. When the decision was eventually overruled, Dr. Hurley had to make the choice to delay chemo treatment and get the scan or start the treatment to try and save his life. Matthew Handley discussed that decision with him, how he has helped his patients in similar situations, and what sparked his initial interest in medicine.
