Becoming A Patient

Total Patient Care Approach to Cancer Treatment

Phoebe's treatment philosophy helps patients become actively involved in all phases of their treatment, an approach shown to produce better outcomes.

A Multidisciplinary Team for Treating Cancer

Each patient at the Phoebe Cancer Center has an entire team working for them, including:

  • Doctors
  • Certified dosimetrist
  • Counselors
  • Certified radiation therapist
  • Pharmacists
  • Physicist
  • Lab analysts
  • Certified oncology nurses
  • Other medical professionals

This wide and deep pool of knowledge and experience is brought to bear on each patient's case with an individualized plan of treatment and management of the disease's impact on patient and family.

Most people diagnosed with cancer know very little about the disease or how to cope with it as it tries to take over their life. At the Phoebe Cancer Center, in Albany, Georgia, we work to change that with exceptional programs that encourage our patients to learn more about cancer and its wide-ranging effects and become actively involved in their therapy.

Armed with this knowledge, our patients are more aware of what to expect from their treatment and what they can do to manage daily factors such as diet and psychological effects. By becoming actively involved, patients can increase the odds in their favor and improve their chances for a fuller recovery.
