Patients in the Multidisciplinary Gynecologic Oncology Clinic receive comprehensive therapy coordinated within a single clinic, resulting in the delivery of cutting-edge clinical care. And we give special attention to providing you a caring and supportive environment with the help of our nursing staff, nurse practitioners, social workers and dietitians.
We also offer the latest chemotherapy research processes that use both investigational and approved medications for a wide range of gynecologic malignancies.
Our services are divided between oncology (cancer diagnosis and treatment) and colposcopy. Colposcopy is dedicated to patients with pre-cancer of the lower genital tract including abnormal Pap tests, dysplasia, condyloma, and carcinoma in situ.
