Goals of Care

We work in partnership with our patients to provide an evidence based treatment plan, working closely with other members of the cancer multidisciplinary team. This team includes surgeons, radiation oncologists, pathologists, radiologists and supportive care health professionals. We all attend cancer multidisciplinary meetings to ensure thorough and accurate diagnosis and a clear treatment plan for our patients.

Clinical trials are an important component of cancer care and through our affiliation with Eastern Health, we offer a broad range of clinical trials.

We believe it is important to have an honest and open relationship with our patients and their families delivered in a supportive and caring environment.
