A team approach
Before you arrive at the multidisciplinary lung cancer clinic, your lung cancer team reviews your information and outlines a plan that’s based on their collective expertise and the latest advances in cancer treatment.
Your same-day integrated care team includes:
- Medical oncologists
- Nurse navigator
- Radiation oncologists
- Surgical oncologists
A unified team, dedicated to your care
Meeting with our lung specialists on the same day gives you the opportunity to ask your care team questions about all aspects of your treatment, including what types of medicines will be used, how your care will progress and any new medical breakthroughs. As an added layer of care, our nurse navigator will also be by your side at the multidisciplinary clinic, taking detailed notes and keeping track of any follow-up appointments you may need.
Your recovery and well-being serve as the cornerstones of our multidisciplinary approach to lung cancer treatment. By streamlining your care, our experts are able to shorten the time between diagnosis and treatment, while also saving you valuable time and travel between appointments. Our multidisciplinary team stands united with you on your journey from diagnosis to treatment to survivorship.
