Effective, safe and compassionate patient care is our top priority. This is made possible by our multidisciplinary approach and philosophy that is unparalleled by any other radiation oncology practice in Northern Virginia.
Each of our new patient’s cases undergoes thoughtful review and discussion at our weekly radiation oncology physician conference. With the goal of maximum efficacy and optimal safety in mind, new radiation plans for our patients must also pass our weekly radiation oncology peer-review process. This important review meeting brings together the input from our eight board-certified radiation oncology physicians, as well as nurses, radiation therapists, medical physicists, medical dosimetrists, and social work specialists.
Advanced and complex cancer cases are further discussed in person with experienced surgeons and medical oncologists at our specialty-specific multidisciplinary tumor boards for central nervous system, head and neck, thoracic, breast, upper & lower gastrointestinal, gynecologic, and lymphoid & myeloid, blood cancers.
On-Treatment Patient Care
While on treatment, our patients benefit from weekly physician and nursing checkup visits during their radiation treatments, in addition to daily MD verification of positioning & radiation localization images with the goal of accuracy, precision and safety.
