Cancer is complex and its treatment generally requires coordination among different sub-specialties such as radiation oncology, medical oncology, hematology, surgical oncology, pathology, radiology, palliative care, nutrition and others.
Our specialists meet weekly to discuss the condition of each of our patients and their cancers. For each patient, they develop a comprehensive, highly-individualized treatment plan that is designed to achieve the best possible outcome, and they closely monitor the progress of that treatment to allow for rapid adjustments, as warranted. This includes treating medical conditions that may not be related to your cancer.
Patients and their families often meet with their entire team during a single visit, making it easier to understand all aspects of diagnosis and treatment recommendations. Our team remains in close contact with patients and their referring physicians throughout treatment and beyond, because we put a premium on comfort, convenience, access to information and monitoring our patients’ progress once initial treatment is complete.
