Living with Pituitary Disorders

While our primary goal is to cure or control the disease, another top priority is relieving suffering and discomfort for pituitary disorder patients undergoing treatments.
In addition to curative treatments, City of Hope pituitary disorder patients and their caregivers have access to the broad range of services offered by our Department of Supportive Care Medicine. The department’s staff of professionals, including supportive medicine physicians, rehabilitation therapists, psychiatrists, support groups and clinical social workers, can help patients and loved ones with a variety of care and wellness issues including:
The Department of Supportive Care Medicine is based in City of Hope’s Sheri & Les Biller Patient and Family Resource Center, which integrates all support services in a central location. The Biller Resource Center provides a warm and welcoming space where patients, families and caregivers can access the resources, education and support they need to strengthen and empower themselves, before, during and after treatment.
For more information or to contact the Biller Resource Center staff, please call 626-256-4673, ext. 32273 (3CARE).
