After a cancer diagnosis, one of the first doctors you meet will be a medical oncologist. Our medical oncologist, Dr. Bassel Jallad, will work with our multi-disciplinary team of surgeons, radiation oncologists, pathologists, radiologists, specialized caregivers, and your primary care provider to develop an individualized treatment plan for you.
If at any point in your treatment, you require inpatient care, you will be admitted to the Blessing Hospital oncology unit on 3 North. Here, your medical oncologist and an oncology clinical nurse specialist, with a team of certified oncology registered nurses, will oversee your care.
Talk with your doctor about clinical trials that might benefit you.
