At Pinnacle Oncology we believe that caring for a patient’s medical needs is only a small portion of the effort entailed in caring for a person in the battle with cancer. To this end we have teamed up with the Wellness Community, a nationally recognized organization devoted to the psychosocial support of patients with cancer. Meetings held monthly at our facility help patients and their families cope with the difficulties involved in the diagnosis and treatment of cancer. Meetings are held the third Thursday of each month and are moderated by a trained staff member. In addition, teaming up with care providers in the community we ensure that patients needing genetic counseling can be referred for this important service and that when appropriate, discussions regarding hospice and palliative care are undertaken. Our philosophy of up-front and honest discussions makes decisions by patients and families alike less difficult during difficult times.
