How we treat your cancer
Our patient-centered, team approach to care has always been the foundation of our cancer program. A team of physicians, from a variety of specialty areas, works together to provide the best cancer care – from diagnosis through treatment and beyond.
This approach enables physicians to collaborate on your treatment plan to determine the best course of care, based on their collective expertise.
This approach offers many benefits to patients, including:
- The time from diagnosis to definitive care is significantly shortened by a well coordinated care plan. The time can be shortened by weeks, which is imperative in getting to the cancer earlier to effectively treat it.
- The communication between physicians happens at a faster rate. All the physicians have each other’s direct contact information. They can communicate directly and move the patient through the process more efficiently. All unnecessary delays are minimized.
- Your primary care physician stays informed through the entire process. With access to your complete medical history, he or she can manage your care over a long period of time.
