How to Choose Your Cancer Care Team (w/VIDEO)
September 16, 2016 | by Denise Heady
Where you get your cancer care matters. And choosing the right care team could be the key to survival.
Comprehensive cancer centers, such as City of Hope, provide multidisciplinary care to patients, bringing together a broad array of expertise from multiple disciplines — all under one roof.
Teams of medical oncologists, surgical oncologists and radiation oncologists work together to make sure patients get the best care using the most recent technology and research available.
This is "your (medical) squad" that will help you decide which treatment plan is right for you.
On a recent segment of “KTLA 5 Morning News,” City of Hope neurosurgeon and scientist Rahul Jandial, M.D., Ph.D., discusses how a cancer team works and the rights you have as a patient to choose the best treatment plan possible.
