Staff

Nowhere is teamwork more important than in treating cancers or hematologic problems.

And one of the greatest benefits of The Cancer Team is that it creates an environment of communication and cooperation, making it easy for physicians to share information with one another and to work together on your behalf.

This team approach means that the radiation oncologist is frequently in the same room with the medical oncologist and the surgeon, discussing, face-to-face, the optimum way to combine their skills to get the best results for you.
