Patient Perspectives


Patient Care

A cancer diagnosis can be staggering and the information that follows – the treatment options and referrals and the coordination of care – can be overwhelming.

But at the Georgia Cancer Center, things are different.

Here, we understand the importance of simplicity, of ensuring that the information, and more importantly the care you receive, is never confusing.

Using a patient-focused multi-disciplinary team approach, the Georgia Cancer Center streamlines the treatment process. Patients are able to schedule appointments with a variety of specialists, from surgeons to oncologists to therapists in a single day because at the Cancer Center, treatment is a team endeavor.
