What to Expect

  • The physicians screen every referral in advance; if additional critical studies are needed prior to the multidisciplinary consultation, they will be arranged by our team
  • All patients are discussed in a multidisciplinary tumor conference the morning prior to their visit with a review of all pertinent radiologic studies and biopsy results (if applicable)
  • The patients are seen by both the medical oncologist and the surgical oncologist on the same day and in the same office setting
  • The recommendations are communicated to the referring physicians and further steps in care are facilitated by our patient care coordinator
