Thoracic Oncology Clinic

Lung cancer is the second most common type of cancer for both men and women. After being diagnosed, you will probably have many questions and there are many specialists you may need to meet with, which can sometimes take weeks to schedule. Thanks to the Lung Cancer Clinic, we’ve significantly reduced the amount of time you may have to wait.

The Lung cancer Clinic allows you to meet with a variety of thoracic oncology specialists and surgeons, all at one time, to discuss the course of treatment that is right for you.

Prior to your appointment, a team of specialists will review and evaluate your specific diagnosis. This team works as a group to review lab results, scans, pathology reports and any other clinical information available on your condition. Together, our team will develop a treatment plan that is best for you.

The physicians then meet individually with you to review the plan. In a very short timeframe, and in one setting, you are able to receive a thorough consultation with each specialist, learn about the next steps and address any issues or concerns. Follow up appointments are scheduled the same day so you can begin treatment right away. You will also receive peace of mind knowing the treatment plan is the product of a team effort, with contributions from every specialist involved in your care.

If you have not been diagnosed with lung cancer, but have a worrisome finding on a scan, we can also review scans and tests to determine the best options recommended for your care.
