The Chest Center at Athens Regional Medical Center offers a patient-centered, multi-disciplinary approach to the diagnosis and treatment of lung cancer.
At the center, a patient navigator guides patients and families through all the steps of the diagnostic and treatment process.
Comprehensive Lung Cancer Care
The center provides a centralized and convenient referral source for community physicians and patients. Its high-tech, comprehensive approach to patient evaluation, diagnosis and treatment planning allows patients to access services either through self-referral or referral from a physician.
In addition, the center hosts weekly chest conferences that bring together a team of pulmonologists, medical oncologists, radiation oncologists, radiologists, pathologists and thoracic surgeons. These specialists work together to develop the best plan of treatment, giving patients quicker access to timely and accurate diagnosis and treatment.
