With many advances in cancer treatments, we feel it’s important to have a collaborative approach to ensure each patient’s treatment plan is comprehensive and effective.
The goal of the Hall-Perrine Cancer Center’s Multidisciplinary Clinic is to move patients from diagnosis to treatment faster – that’s why our patients see all their doctors in one day, during one appointment. The team is tailored to each patient’s needs and may include a medical oncologist, radiation oncologist, oncologic surgeon, oncology nurse navigator, oncology genetic counselors and other specialists. The patient’s treatment plan is evaluated together as a team to ensure quality care.
