    We work closely with our patients to make sure any discomfort and side effects from either the cancer itself or its treatment are properly monitored and managed. We help patients manage their symptoms with nutritional guidance, speech therapy, pain management, counseling, complementary and integrative therapies, and exercise.

    We also offer support groups, ethics consultations, personal consultation about appearance changes, and resources for patients, families, and caregivers.
