Our Comprehensive Team

Our multidisciplinary team works together to provide integrated, seamless care for every patient. The program's team approach to care allows our physicians to share each other’s experiences and expertise to best serve each patient we treat. Our program works within the Lifespan Cancer Institute’s multidisciplinary services to meet all our patients’ needs. We encourage patients to use free services such as patient navigationclinical social work and complementary therapies.
