Patients benefit from advanced, expert care from our doctors and access to clinical trials and new therapies. We follow comprehensive guidelines from the National Comprehensive Cancer Network for diagnosing, treating, and researching cancers.
Our doctors also participate in tumor boards. In these meetings, we gather hematologists, radiation and medical oncologists, surgeons, nurses and other experts to discuss complex cases. More than 85 percent of our blood disease, benign tumor, and cancerous tumor cases are reviewed by the tumor board. This combined expertise helps us reach the best treatment option for patients with complex diseases.
What to expect
We want patients to have a seamless experience when they need follow-up care. We’ll cover everything, from explaining self-care instructions to scheduling follow-up appointments. Our nurses are the patients’ main point of contact. Having one point of contact makes it easier to ask questions and get answers.
If needed, we subscribe to a translation service through which we have access to medical professionals who can translate more than 100 languages. This ensures our patients receive accurate information about their condition and treatment.
