Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Stark-Vance "Do you want to see an oncologist? Of course not! Oncologists specialize in the treatment of cancer, which is a frightening and often deadly disease. Although there are definite risk factors for cancer, for many people the diagnosis of cancer is not something which could have been anticipated or prevented. But my commitment to you is that I will be honest with you about your disease and your treatment options, and work with you to find the best option for you."

This is one of the smartest, most compassionate doctors I have ever known. She goes above and beyond the call of duty to see you have the best care. She gave my daughter unending great care until the end. I can never thank you enough for all you did for her and now as well for me. You are the greatest !! Joan Pitman

She cares even after hours. She does her research before treatment then lets you have questions and help make the choice.

The best of the best! Dr Stark Vance has led the fight against stage 4 brain cancer in my husband for 14 YEARS! Diagnosed in 2002, he still has MRI s every 6 months and is monitored by Virginia. She is tireless in her love for her patients. With her encouragement, he also goes to Duke's Brain Tumor Clinic, but they have always agreed with her designed treatment plan. She is well known by the people fighting GBM and she was the one who pioneered the use of AVASTIN for brain tumors. ?? Dr SV!
