Receiving a cancer diagnosis can be overwhelming. Here are some questions to ask
your physicians to help ensure you are making the best choices.
Cancer Care Built Around YouThe Clinical Cancer Center at Froedtert & The Medical College of Wisconsin is designed to provide patient-centered cancer care.
Our physicians are specialists who work in teams that focus on specific kinds of cancer. For example, one team is dedicated to treating breast cancer. Another focuses on prostate cancer. And another concentrates on brain and spine tumors. There are 13 of these disease-specific teams.
Physician team members in each cancer program collaborate to provide every patient with the most effective treatment plan. Patients link with one expert team for all treatment options and fully coordinated care and support. It’s an approach that simplifies the journey for cancer patients, while ensuring they receive the best care possible.
The Clinical Cancer Center offers a specialized team for every kind of cancer. Find the program team dedicated to your cancer type at our Programs and Services page.
Within every cancer program, a new patient coordinator will schedule initial appointments and tests. The coordinator will also gather medical records, so physicians have everything they need. Nurse coordinators partner with the new patient coordinators and together, they make sure treatment proceeds smoothly, answer questions and provide resources.
