Guthrie’s philosophy is one of a partnership with the primary care provider. If you have a patient with a suspected cancer, they will have an appointment with an oncologist within 24 hours. This centralized coordination of care begins with one phone number – 570-887-3500 – which sets your patient on a path to an individualized treatment plan developed by a team of specialists including medical oncologists, radiation oncologists, surgical oncologists, surgeons, radiologists, interventional radiologists and pathologists.
Weekly multi-disciplinary conferences for breast, lung and hepatobiliary cancers keep the team focused on your patient and their needs.
In the highly complex arena of oncology needs, the Guthrie model has proven especially effective at getting patients to the right treatment as soon as possible.
