People with cancer want hope fast. At Tanner, you get it IN THREE DAYS.
There is perhaps nothing more frightening than a diagnosis of cancer. And there is nothing more important to a newly diagnosed cancer patient than being seen quickly and having someone take the time to answer questions and explain options.
So we strive to see every new patient within three days of diagnosis. We then use that time to help you gain an understanding of what you're facing and how we'll help every step of the way.
At Tanner, you’ll meet with a team of cancer care specialists who will develop a treatment plan that's right for you within days—not weeks.
Our professional and highly skilled team of specialists will provide you with:
- Integrated, personalized and compassionate care
- The latest and most accurate cancer treatment therapies and technologies
- A convenient and centralized west Georgia location
At Tanner, we treat the whole person, not just the disease. And you’re not just a number. Unlike in many larger cities, our staff not only works here in west Georgia, they live here, too. You could be one of our neighbors, friends or family members. And that’s exactly how we’ll treat you.
We begin your personalized path to recovery by forming a team of experts around you that includes experienced surgery, oncology, hematology, radiology, nutrition, rehabilitation, patient navigation and nursing professionals. When necessary, our cancer team also may call in other specialists. Tanner has a medical staff of more than 300 physicians representing more than 34 specialties.
