Banner MD Anderson patients experience customized, comprehensive and compassionate cancer care. Patients have a team of experts who understand the nuances of each type of cancer to develop a treatment plan based on his or her unique needs.
Our cancer experts include medical oncologists, surgeons, radiation oncologists, physician specialists, nurses and clinical support staff. Clinical nurse navigators work closely with patients, guiding them through their first visit and serving as a single point of contact throughout their care.
It is no secret that patient care is most effective when it is truly collaborative. Our evidence-based, multidisciplinary approach brings together physicians from all cancer specialties to provide highly coordinated and compassionate patient care.
In a traditional health care setting, a patient facing a cancer diagnosis may be referred to multiple specialists for tests and consultations before a care plan is ever created. At Banner MD Anderson, you will meet with your team of physicians and clinical support staff in one location, reducing the need to travel to multiple facilities and ensuring communication between all of your caregivers. This team will then develop and implement your care plan together with you, taking into account your personal wishes.
At Banner MD Anderson you will find outpatient services, including radiation treatment, diagnostic imaging, infusion therapy, cancer specific clinics, support services and more.
