Cancer Screening and Diagnosis
Cancer screening promotes early detection of the disease when treatments are most effective. Routine screening can detect cancer in its earliest stages, often before someone experiences symptoms or the disease advances.
Doylestown Health's Cancer Institute uses the latest technology for cancer screening and diagnosis, including low-dose CT scans for up to 40 percent less radiation exposure. We provide patients with comprehensive educational information related to their diagnosis and schedule appointments with our highly experienced cancer specialists for follow-up tests.
Diagnostics and Coordinated Services
We are proud to offer patients prompt service and limited wait times for appointments to develop a plan of care quickly and efficiently. When time is of the essence, our cancer specialists see patients quickly to provide second opinions on cancer diagnoses.
Patients meet with our oncology nurse navigators before scheduled tests or biopsies. Nurse navigators offer patients support during testing, provide thorough and coordinated services after tests are completed, and arrange for follow-up services and appointments, if necessary.
Doylestown Health's Cancer Institute encourages all patients to undergo regular screenings for cancer to build awareness and learn prevention strategies.
Doylestown Health's Cancer Institute's specialists have expertise in screening and diagnosing common or complex forms of cancers using the most sophisticated technologies.
Doylestown Health patients have direct access to the Cancer Risk and Genetics Program provided through Jefferson's Sidney Kimmel Cancer Center.
