At Banner Desert Cancer Center, we are committed to providing each cancer patient with a personalized and comprehensive healing experience.
Because we know that diet plays an important role in a patient’s cancer treatment, we offer free consultations to our cancer patients with Lillian Swatek, a certified specialist in oncology nutrition and a registered dietitian.
Good nutrition is especially important to cancer patients, as it can help:
- Maintain energy levels
- Fortify the immune system
- Manage side effects of treatment
Planning and Consultation
Lillian is available to help patients develop an individualized nutrition plan based on each patient’s diagnosis and treatment. Consultations typically last one hour. Patients are encouraged to talk with Lillian as their treatment progresses to move forward with their nutrition plan.
Patients can call Lillian direct, or can talk with their personal physicians, nurses or counselors regarding the nutrition support program and education available according to their individualized patient care plan.
Lillian is available for appointments through the Banner Desert Cancer Center from 7 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays.
Make your appointment with Lillian today at (480) 412-5152.
