Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Melear "The most important part of patient care is individualizing and personalizing a plan for each individual. In addition, oncology patients require state of the art care and technology. We have access to a large number of clinical trials in the Austin area through Texas Oncology, which is a critical service for many such patients. Also, we have access to cutting edge radiation facilities and oncologic specific subspecialists and programs, creating a comprehensive cancer center."
