Getting a cancer diagnosis is challenging and we recognize the difficult road that lies ahead. We are dedicated to helping you face those challenges by providing reliable sources of information, that offer the reassurance and guidance you need to move through your survivorship journey.
Our goal at Summit Medical Group is to help our patients make their health care decisions as confidently as possible, based on the knowledge and information we promise to provide. In addition to explaining your condition and the details of your expected treatment, we provide a library of educational resources that you can take home with you from your visit. This information was compiled with the intention that it would become a vital resource for cancer patients and their families.
We know that every patient is unique and individual treatment is highly dependent on the specific type of cancer, its location in the body, and other possible factors. At our facilities, you will find state-of-the-art technology and a team of highly dedicated and skilled physicians and staff to support those technologies. To contribute to individual treatment success, we offer an integrated, multidisciplinary approach, involving nurses, radiation therapists, dosimetrists, physicists and physicians to provide some of the most advanced cancer treatments available.
We hope the following information will familiarize you with the various techniques we use to treat different forms of cancer and trust that this information, along with thorough discussions with your doctors, will help you gain more confidence in your prescribed course of treatment.
All radiation plans undergo additional quality assurance testing by the Summit Medical Group physicist prior to delivery of the radiation treatments, to ensure that all radiation plans are being delivered with the same precision as was planned. Each patient’s plan is then reviewed in detail by a multidisciplinary team within Summit Medical Group.
