Anyone have a recommendation for a veterinary oncologist in the Bay Area? Not Sage/VMS in Campbell...

Right now I feel like Sage/VMS in Campbell is taking advantage of the fact that I am scared and worried and will do anything for my dog by over charging me.
For example: Sage took a set of x-rays 4 hours after my regular vet did (and provided them with the films), and charged 3x as much. They started an IV and catheter for an ultrasound (and were unable to explain why an IV and catheter were needed for an ultrasound) and charged $200 for these things. I believe they care more about my wallet than my dog.
If you can convince me they are the best and it's worth it, please do. Otherwise, do you have any recommendations for a veterinary oncologist in the Bay Area? We are in San Jose, but willing to drive to anywhere within driving distance. I am by no means rich, but my pets mean the world to me and I am willing to do whatever I can to keep them healthy. I would just rather spend $500 toward chemo than unnecessary IVs and x-rays.
