We support you after treatment as well with survivorship care plans, therapies and follow-up to ensure quality of life post-treatment.
Nationally accredited cancer care
The Genesis cancer physicians’ group was among the first practices in Ohio to be certified by the American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO) as a Quality Oncology Practice. This means our cancer team diagnoses and treats cancer patients based on evidenced-based care, education about your diagnosis and treatment options, and close monitoring of your condition and symptoms, so you get the right treatment at the right time.
Certified surgeons and cancer nurse navigators
Your cancer team combines knowledge and expertise to develop a well-rounded, customized treatment plan designed around your needs. Our qualified staff is comprised of cancer surgeons, medical and radiation oncologists, pathologists, oncology certified nurses and plastic surgeons who work together to provide personalized plans of care. Cancer nurse navigators are oncology-certified nurses who specialize in caring for your particular cancer. They follow you from the initial biopsy, diagnosis, surgery, treatment, follow-up and through survivorship. These nurses are a constant for you and your family. They help to provide education and answer questions you have throughout your cancer journey.
