For many cancer patients, the first step following diagnosis is finding a doctor and cancer treatment team that they can trust. Throughout the U.S., there are a number of health centers, many of which are equipped to treat patients with cancer. A number also maintain doctors who specialize in mesothelioma cancer treatment. Before beginning any type of medical treatment, it is imperative that you do your research. As a patient, you have a right to receive treatment in a comfortable, patient-focused setting. For those suffering from cancer, this is especially important, as some cancer treatments, such as chemotherapy, are carried out over an extended time period. It is important for newly diagnosed patients with all medical conditions to consider all options when devising a treatment plan. It is advisable to seek out a second, or even third opinion when choosing a doctor and health center, and it is also recommended that patients and their loved ones visit a number of health centers to tour the facilities and meet with doctors before settling on a treatment location. Although this may often involve additional expenses and travel, it is imperative that all patients, including those with cancer, feel comfortable with the health center where they will undergo treatment. Below is a directory of reputable health centers within the U.S., searchable by city, state, and/or zip code. We invite you to choose and contact a health center in your area for more information.
