New Cancer Patients
The Dreiling/Schmidt Cancer Institute medical team has the expertise to handle even the most complex and challenging cases. Appointments at the Dreiling/Schmidt Cancer Institute are planned carefully to coordinate for all your needs. We attempt to obtain information from your referring doctor with labs and imaging as well as pathology. We also try to obtain any pertinent history. We will work with other providers and your local hospital/clinic to provide what is called multidisciplinary care. This will help keep your labs/imaging and treatment close to home whenever possible. We want to ensure you get the best possible care while ensuring your primary care providers and local family community are there to support you through every step of your treatment.
