When diagnosed with breast cancer your oncologist may refer you to Turville Bay to determine if radiation therapy is an option for you. You’ll meet one of our Radiation Oncologists, a physician that specializes in radiation therapy treatment.
During that consultation we will:
- get a complete medical history.
- review test results and any imaging you have had.
- explore your diagnosis.
- consider the benefits of radiation therapy in your treatment.
- discuss the need for support such as Gilda's Club of Madison.
If it is decided that radiation therapy is right for you, a second appointment will be scheduled with our team of specialists for treatment planning. This plan will determine the length of treatment, the technology that’s right for you, and your treatment schedule. We’ll also link you to Turville Bay’s Patient Portal so you can access medical information pertaining to your treatment from your computer or smart phone, or contact your healthcare team if needed.
“The treatment is unique to each patient. At Turville Bay you have a multi-disciplinary team, and after we meet with you’re your team determines the best treatment option. Our teams of specialists deliver pure patient care.”
Dr. Michelle Mackay
