Wellstar Partners with Northwest Georgia Oncology Centers for Collaborative Care
A cancer diagnosis can be unexpected and scary for both patients and their loved ones. But at Wellstar, we know the key to fighting cancer lies in a collaborative team approach.
That’s why we’ve partnered with Northwest Georgia Oncology Centers (NGOC) to bring the highest level of expert cancer care to Georgia. Here, you will have a multidisciplinary team by your side — an entire group of experts who will take the time to get to know you and will help you face cancer with confidence.
“We’re there for our patients, to come up with their cancer plan, to get them through that, but we also follow them, oftentimes for 5 years or 10 years, to make sure that their cancer doesn’t come back,” said Dr. Michael Andrews, chief cancer officer at Wellstar. “It can be a very rewarding and close relationship.”
NGOC is a team of board-certified medical oncologists and hematologists passionate about fighting for each patient. They are leaders and innovators in community-based cancer care and focus on creating the best outcomes for each patient.
And with convenient locations all throughout metro Atlanta, you can get the care you need without the added stress of travel.
Customized, Cutting-Edge Care
Approximately 1.9 million new cancer cases will be diagnosed in the United States every year, but we know that every patient is different, from their bodies to their genetics to their lifestyles. Your care team will work with you on a personalized treatment plan tailored just for you.
And cancer care has evolved from just the chemotherapies of years past. Now more than ever, Georgia cancer patients can successfully be treated with the help of Wellstar’s expert multidisciplinary team of providers.
The Wellstar cancer team is on the cutting edge of cancer treatments, including genetics-based immunotherapies and more than 20 active clinical trials. Cancer specialists are involved in the latest research, giving patients access to the newest treatment options before they are widely available. A multidisciplinary team of compassionate oncologists, radiologists, surgeons, nurse navigators and other care professionals dedicated to patient care develops customized treatment plans tailored for the best outcomes.
