Breast Cancer Care Multispecialty Team
The Spectrum Health Breast Cancer Multispecialty Team is designed to get you to treatment faster and with more input into your care plan. A team of specialists evaluates each newly diagnosed breast cancer patient and together, in one day, they develop a treatment plan.
All in One Place, All in One Day
When it comes to cancer, there’s no time to waste. That’s why we bring a whole team of cancer specialists together in one place for one appointment with you and your family. In a single appointment at Lemmen-Holton Cancer Pavilion, you will:
Meet with the area’s finest surgical, chemotherapy, and radiation therapy experts
Discuss the best treatment options for you and get answers to all your questions
Have a written treatment plan by appointment's end
This team approach saves you and your family the anxiety and uncertainty of waiting days and weeks between individual appointments. It lets you focus your energy on what’s important: getting well.
Your Breast Cancer Multispecialty Team
Other important team members include a chaplain, oncology certified registered dietitian, financial counselor and other specialists you might request.
Your referring physician is invited to attend the meeting with the multispecialty team. Otherwise we will send our recommended treatment plan to your referring or primary care physician.
The breast cancer multispecialty team also can provide a second opinion if you have already chosen a breast surgeon.
Appointments and Location
The Breast Cancer Multispecialty Team meets weekly. Appointments can be scheduled by the patient or referring physician. For scheduling or more information, call 616.486.5993.
