Multidisciplinary Treatment For Comprehensive Care

The UF Health GI Oncology Center is staffed by highly trained academic physicians with expertise in a variety of medical specialties and subspecialties, who collaborate to optimize rapid diagnosis and highly effective treatment of patients with digestive cancers.

The multidisciplinary team of digestive cancer specialists includes UF Health surgical oncologists, medical oncologists, radiation oncologists, gastroenterologists, pathologists and radiologists, as well as oncology nurses, genetic counselors, social workers, psychologists, nutritionists and integrative medicine specialists. To ensure the best possible outcomes, this team meets weekly to discuss and determine the best treatment plan for each individual patient — plans that incorporate the latest modalities, including access to experimental treatments and new therapies not available elsewhere. During the center’s multidisciplinary clinic, patients can see all essential members of the team during a single comprehensive visit.

Our dedicated GI oncology nurse navigator facilitates all aspects of patient care and serves as the liaison between patients, referring physicians and the multidisciplinary UF Health GI oncology team. This simplifies patient access for appointments and services, and provides patients with continuity from the initial visit through treatment and follow-up consultations. It also ensures the seamless transition of care from the referring physicians to the UF Health GI Oncology Center and back again, easing the burden on patients and their families.

Commitment To Communication

Our team at the UF GI Oncology Center is dedicated to providing the highest level of care to patients throughout the entire course of their cancer treatment. Referring physicians are an integral part of that care. We are committed to keeping all members of the health care team informed about each patient’s treatment and will provide information on a regular basis to ensure that everyone involved remains up to date.

For more information about the services of the UF Health Gastrointestinal Oncology Center, to refer a patient, or to schedule a consultation for a second opinion, contact the GI oncology nurse navigator at 352-265-0992.

Clinical Trials

All UF Health physicians in the UF Health GI Oncology Center are actively involved in advancements in their individual specialty areas and are familiar with the latest discoveries and research studies related to the care of gastrointestinal cancer patients. This provides patients with access to a wide range of clinical trials, including those developed exclusively by or available only at UF.

Patients may be offered the opportunity to participate in a clinical trial if it is felt the trial presents a reasonable chance for an improved outcome or for those desiring to help improve the understanding of cancer care for other patients in the future. The GI oncology research coordinator works closely with the UF Health GI Oncology Center team members to identify clinical trials and other opportunities that are most appropriate for each patient, and to provide patients with information about these relevant clinical trials.
