Medical Oncology is a subspecialty of internal medicine that deals with the diagnosis and management of cancer in close collaboration with surgical and radiation oncologists. The department also works with palliative care, genetics and haematology.
Associate Professor Eva Segelov has rooms in St Vincent’s Clinic for outpatient consultations and chemotherapy delivery services based at St Vincent’s Private Hospital (for inpatients).
Patients who are being investigated for or who have been diagnosed with cancer are provided with holistic management of their disease. All treatment options are considered within the context of patient comorbidities and wishes, and clearly defined treatment aims. Excellence in communication with patients, their families, their General Practitioner and other health professionals is provided. Where appropriate, patients (deidentified) are discussed at Multidisciplinary Clinics to ensure access to best practice, including the possibility of being included in clinical trials.
Cancer patients are seen in a timely manner, and will always be accommodated in a short timeframe, according to their needs. The privacy and efficiency of the practice at St Vincent’s Clinic, allows optimal management of patients with this confronting diagnosis.
