When it comes to cancer, there's nothing simple about it. Multiple office visits to different specialists is the norm. And that can translate into time lost waiting for appointments when treatment should be underway.
That's why the Edward Cancer Center, offers three multidisciplinary clinics specializing in breast, thoracic and neuro-oncology. These clinics speed up treatment in an effective and covenient way by bringing expert cancer professionals from a variety of specialties together under one roof.

Our multidisciplinary team of doctors gather to review and discuss each patient case all together in the same location. These experts evaluate the patient's case and develop an individualized treatment plan. As a result, the patient is informed that same day on what their treatment will entail and who will be involved in their care. In addition to thoroughly educating each patient, our team keeps referring physicians informed of their patients' tests, treatments, and results in order to enhance communication and coordination of care.
We have caring and supportive team members. Our highly specialized team prides themselves on giving patients the time and attention they deserve. Our multidisciplinary team includes medical and radiation oncologists, surgeons, radiologists, advanced practice nurses, financial coordinators, social workers, a dietitian, and more. Each of our experts brings a unique perspective and experience to the table – an invaluable resource to patients.
In addition, each clinic has its own nurse navigator to help guide patients and families with anything and everything – from answering treatment questions to lending a supportive ear.
