If you wish, we can handle the entire process with the insurance company on your behalf and thus prevent you from going through any inconvenience caused by this type of procedure. If you do not have an insurer or if it does not cover the cost, we will help you find a solution.
With a cancer diagnosis, it is normal to act hastily and prematurely.
The key to our doctors being able to make a correct diagnosis is to have all the medical information. Each type of cancer requires specific documentation and that is what the health care staff will explain and help you gather in order to prepare your first visit.
Our team of oncologists is subspecialised in all types of cancer. That is, each professional deals with a specific pathology. For example, the breast cancer expert handles breasts but not colon. The professional dealing with your case will be a specialist in your specific type of cancer. Even so, our professionals exchange opinions and discuss cases to guarantee the suitability of the therapeutic decisions that are made.
The medical team is composed of highest-level professionals who will handle your case in thoroughly and with a high self-demand level. Sharing views with the rest of the team or even with other specialists.
