We know that when treatment for cancer is over, your journey is not over.
It is a new beginning.
Our Thriving After Cancer survivorship clinic provides comprehensive care to patients who have completed treatment for cancer. At each visit we step back and take a look at the whole picture, including each part of your treatment, your health habits, and your current physical and emotional well-being. We focus on any symptoms you may be having and educate you about the potential late and long term effects of your treatment. We provide clear directions for screening and we encourage you to make healthy lifestyle choices.
Our team of professionals is dedicated to addressing your needs. We work with internists and registered dietitians and refer you to a specialist when necessary. We believe all patients treated for cancer deserve this type of collaborative care and information.
You’ll receive an individualized survivorship care plan, which includes a summary of the treatment you completed and a written plan containing follow up care and screening recommendations.

If you or someone you know have been treated for cancer and do not have a survivorship care plan, please call 202.741.2222 (Ext. 1) to make an appointment.
