A Comforting, Healing Place of Care
Everyone at the Feist-Weiller Cancer Center is here to provide an atmosphere that allows you to focus all your strength and energy on your cancer care. We offer convenient parking with available valet service for when you visit us.
Our integrative medicine programs incorporate yoga and symptom-management services in our calm, healing environment. You can take advantage of nutrition counseling to complement your unique condition and treatment plan, and our team includes registered dietitians who are available for consultations.
You never need to feel like you are going through this experience alone. We offer shared medical appointments, in which you’ll visit your doctor along with other patients with similar medical conditions. This lets you learn from their experiences and find new strategies for coping and healing. We also offer robust survivorship services to patients with cancer, including counseling and education classes, as well as weekly support groups.
