Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Melson "I specialize in gastrointestinal cancer management, and in particular in hereditary gastrointestinal cancers. Colorectal cancer is the second most common cancer in the U.S. It's largely preventable through colonoscopy. Colonoscopy involves a flexible tube that passes through the colon, and we look for pre-cancerous or pre-malignant lesions and remove them. Cancer care can be complicated. It can involve a lot of different specialists, and patients can wind up - and their families can wind up - seeing a lot of doctors. We try to streamline that so that they - so the patients will see the people that they need to see in a timely manner and frankly not see people that they don't need to see. So we can give not only the best care but also efficient care."
