What to Look For in a Texas Oncology Cancer Center

Nothing prepares an individual or family for a positive diagnosis of cancer. Once the initial shock, uncertainty and fear of the diagnosis wear off, however, patients and their loved ones can regain some semblance of control by taking an active role in seeking out the best possible advice and treatment to increase the odds of a positive outcome. Finding the right Texas oncology cancer center to collaborate with in the process is key.

Texas is home to many outstanding oncology centers, so finding expert care shouldn’t be difficult. It is also important, however, to find centers that patients themselves have confidence in and feel comfortable working with. That makes the search both objective and subjective. With both points in mind, these tips can help patients and families find the right Texas oncology cancer center to fit their specific needs:

• Insist on experience – Whenever possible, it’s best to work with oncology centers that deliver a lot of experience in treating (and beating) the particular form of cancer diagnosed. Centers should offer a diversity of treatment options, when applicable. For example, if the diagnosis is prostate cancer, centers should have expertise in a diversity of treatments, such as brachytherapy and external beam radiation.
• Look for an open exchange of information – Patients have a right to be informed about all treatment options, their potential benefits and their potential side effects. Doctors in an oncology practice should be very willing to answer patient questions and should offer honest, straightforward information that can help patients make appropriate decisions related to their own care.
• A patient first approach – This approach to medicine tends to result in patient-specific treatment plans. Practitioners who take this approach tend to see patients as people and not just as cases. Practices that are built on this philosophy also tend to offer an air of compassion that extends not only to the patient, but also loved ones.

Choosing the right Texas oncology cancer center for treatment is the first step patients can take to help themselves play an active role in their care. While the right treatment partner cannot guarantee outcome, working with an experienced, compassionate practice can make the road ahead easier to endure.
