Cutaneous Lymphoma Multidisciplinary Clinic
The clinic provides a team approach to caring for patients diagnosed with cutaneous lymphoma.
Cutaneous lymphomas, such as mycosis fungoides, are complicated cancers of the skin. Treatment usually includes a combination of skin-directed therapies, like creams, oral medications, radiation therapy and sometimes, chemotherapy. As such, it is best managed by a team of dermatologists and oncologists who have an expertise in this rare lymphoma.
Receiving your care at a multidisciplinary clinic ensures that your doctors are working together closely to make the best decisions for you, and that you have a plan in place for your care when you leave the clinic. This team approach allows you to make one trip to see both doctors rather than coming back on different days for consultations.
We believe that this collaborative effort can lead to better outcomes and increased patient satisfaction.
