What if you are diagnosed with an unusual cancer?

Our physicians have access to all the cancer research centers across the country for referral services and the most current information on treatment options.

A cancer physician will also confidentially present to the cancer conference a patient’s diagnosis. At that time the Cancer Committee will discuss local resources, suggested plan of actions, and appropriate referrals. With the information obtained from this meeting, the physician will contact the referred physician to discuss the diagnosis to determine if that physician would be the appropriate referral for a patient.
