For Patients

At Houston Methodist, we are committed to you, our patient, and your overall health and well-being. Fulfilling this commitment requires a comprehensive, multidisciplinary team approach in the detection and treatment of cancer in an environment that is rich in collaboration and compassion. Our highly trained and specialized clinicians manage cancer with the latest technologies and at the highest level of expertise, providing individualized therapies that optimize your treatment.

Cancer is a complex disease, and treatment planning requires the expertise of many clinicians across varied medical specialties. At Houston Methodist, we employ a multidisciplinary approach in the prevention, detection, diagnosis and treatment of cancer. This interaction allows for the development of a unified plan that benefits from the combined clinical and research expertise of our highly specialized physicians, researchers and other health professionals. Our oncologists collaborate to ensure that you receive comprehensive and coordinated care from diagnosis to recovery.  You will be treated according to an individualized plan that is unique to you and takes into consideration your needs and treatment goals.

 We offer a variety of therapies and support services to minimize the emotional and physical effects of a cancer diagnosis to keep you strong and to keep your treatment plan on course. These support services include spiritual advisors, dieticians, physical therapists, massage therapists, financial counselors and nurse navigators. You are an essential member of your cancer care team, and staying informed, positive and involved is vital in your battle against cancer.
