Treated badly by cancer service

I was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer on November 5. My surgeon wrote to oncology and pain management departments regarding my diagnosis and requested immediate treatment.
By November 20, I had had no correspondence from either and met with my surgeon. He was aghast and wrote more aggressive letters.
I got an appointment with the oncology department as they had to await more definitive results on my cancer and treatment is to begin in early February.
