Common Questions

  • Does this mean I’ll need to be sent to Boston to receive additional treatment?
    No, you will not need to travel to Boston. But you will have access to world- renowned experts at Dana-Farber Brigham Cancer Center through the collaborative cancer conferences that the BCC oncologists participate in with their colleagues in Boston.

    Also, your oncologist may work with a physician at Dana-Farber Brigham Cancer Center to obtain a second opinion virtually. However, if there are very promising studies or treatments only available there and not available locally, then we may recommend going to Boston. If this is the case, we will ensure you are seen in a timely manner.
  • How do I find out if I, personally, can benefit from this special collaborative?
    You can ask your oncologist about a second opinion. Because of the collaboration, we have much easier and faster access to the leaders in the field to ensure that we have considered all treatment options. Additionally, upon diagnosis, every patient will have a customized, personalized treatment plan prepared by both Stamford Health and Dana-Farber Brigham Cancer Center physicians.
  • If I need cancer treatment, how do I directly benefit from this collaborative?

    We understand that it can be confusing and time consuming to see different oncologists. The collaborative allows our experts to present cases to the experts at Dana-Farber Brigham Cancer Center either at the collaborative cancer case conferences or through direct communication with individual physicians, without any additional inconvenience to our patients. The experts will collaborate to recommend one treatment plan, which can help you feel more confident in the care you will receive, giving you peace of mind.
