Other services include:

  • Weekly conferences, where a multi-disciplinary team of board-certified physicians and other medical staff review all aspects of a patient’s case including pathology, imaging studies, medical histories and more. The team then makes a treatment recommendation based on national guidelines but tailored, as needed, to the individual patient.
