The Specialty Lung Cancer Clinic offers lung cancer patients expedited evaluation and disease management. Our medical, surgical and radiation oncologists routinely consult and focus on the individual patient. We develop personalized care plans that include the most innovative treatments to improve outcomes.
Our specialists, including pathologists, pulmonologists and radiologists, hold a weekly tumor board meeting during which we develop individualized, comprehensive management plans for each patient. We schedule appointments so each patient sees multiple providers in one day and starts treatment faster.
