Approach to Care

Prior to beginning treatment, each patient has the opportunity to consult with a team of multidisciplinary specialists who ensures that treatment recommendations are supported by evidence based guidelines. Nurse navigators provide patients with education, guidance to supportive care resources, and ensure that appointments are scheduled in a timely manner. Our multidisciplinary clinic allows for patient to consult with most or all of their treatment team during a single office visit and includes shared decision making into the treatment planning process for every patient. Together with the nurse navigators, surgeons, medical oncologist and radiation oncologist, every patient knows that they have a voice in their treatment planning and that all specialists are in agreeance on their plan.
