The General Oncology department provides outpatient consults, inpatient services as well as the following programs: Houston-area locations in the Bay Area, Sugar Land, Katy and the Woodlands; Integrative Medicine; Lyndon B. Johnson (LBJ) Medical Oncology; Community Clinical Oncology Program (CCOP) Research Base; and the International Cancer Assessment Center (ICAC).
A key attribute of General Oncology is versatility, flexibility, and the ability to manage very complex patients in conjunction with or in lieu of subspecialist oncologists. Faculty members in the department also bring the ability to provide care in a variety of community settings under flexible conditions.
