The Medical Oncology Clinic provides treatment and support for patients with several different types of cancers. Patients meet here with their medical oncologist – a doctor who oversees a cancer patient’s care from diagnosis through treatment and follow-up.
Simmons Comprehensive Cancer Center is unique because the medical oncologists specialize in specific cancers. Unlike generalists, they see more of the same types of cancers and are experts in their fields, including:
- Benign hematology
- Bone cancer
- Brain cancer
- Esophageal cancer
- Gastrointestinal cancer
- Genitourinary cancer
- Head and neck cancer
- Lung cancer
Preparing for Your Appointment
Please ask your referring physician or hospital to have all medical records sent to UT Southwestern Medical Center. We will have access to medical records for any procedures performed at UT Southwestern.
In addition to medical records, here are a few things to gather before your first appointment:
- Insurance cards
- Surgical reports
- X-ray/scan results and/or films
- Blood work results
- Contact information for other doctors you have seen
- Pathology reports
- Specimen slides
- List of current medications
- List of questions for your physicians and/or the financial office
Because you’ll be getting a lot of information, it’s a good idea to take along a family member or friend to help you take notes and remember what the care team says.
The Medical Oncology Clinic at Simmons Comprehensive Cancer Center is located in the Seay Building on UT Southwestern’s North Campus. Valet parking is available in front of the Seay Building.
