Prompt Appointments with Western Surgical Group!
New patients with cancer can see a specialist as soon as the following day at Western Surgical Group. First time appointments can be scheduled with one of our surgeons immediately following a cancer diagnosis to provide rapid access to expert care and support.
Our Western Surgical Group surgeons treat patients with a variety of cancers, including breast, lung, esophagus, stomach, skin, thyroid, colon, and other types of tumors.
“A cancer diagnosis creates tremendous anxiety and uncertainty for both patients and their families,” said Dr. Sharon Wright, a breast and thyroid cancer surgeon. “Not everyone wants or needs to come as quickly as the next day, but for people who do, such quick access to the expertise, care and support they need is tremendously reassuring.”
“Providing next day access immediately following a cancer diagnosis is part of our commitment to patient-centered care,” said Dr. James Harris, one of Western Surgical Group’s fellowship trained oncologic surgeons. “Patients can expect high quality, integrated care, with our clinical teams working together to meet their individual needs in a timely way.”
Next day appointments at Western Surgical Group allow patients to meet with one of our surgical specialists to begin the process of mapping out a personalized treatment plan as soon as possible.
Dr. Penner treats patients with lung cancer and other lung disorders, as a fellowship-trained thoracic surgeon. “Patients will meet with a surgeon who can explain the possible courses of treatment, answer their questions and recommend next steps.” explains Dr. Penner. “Patients and their families can also begin accessing a wide range of support services through our associated hospitals.”
