Our Approach to Care
Your care team includes medical oncologists, radiation oncologists, hematopathologists, radiologists, pain management specialists, oncology nurses, psychosocial support specialists, and other professionals with extraordinary experience and compassion in caring for people with blood cancers. A patient navigator coordinates your visits and procedures and serves as your point of contact to address any questions.
We are part of Columbia University's cancer care team and participate in regular tumor boards, discussing each case and combining our expertise to assemble each patient's most effective treatment plan. We ensure that you and your caregivers understand your options, so you can make an informed decision about what's best for you. Our ultimate goal is to find a cure for your disease.
We understand that a diagnosis of cancer can be challenging for you as well as your loved ones. You'll have access to psychosocial, nutritional, and other support services for people with blood cancers. Your team ensures that your quality of life is the best it can be from the moment of diagnosis and throughout your treatment.
