I understand your concern but the fact is chemotherapy treatment is same every where.
There is a fixed protocol which is adopted whenever chemotherapy is given.
It doesn't make much difference with different centers.
I would advise you to stick to the place near to your home so that it is easy for patient as well as his attendants.
Except chemotherapy nothing can be done as no curative treatment is possible now.
Best of luck
