Our Approach

A serious illness brings uncertainty and can be disruptive to your life and your relationships. If you or your loved ones are feeling anxious, becoming increasingly emotional, or experiencing decreased tolerance during any phase of your cancer care our specialists are here to help.

You are not alone in this journey

Supporting patients is our priority. When going through cancer treatments, you want as much information and support as possible, we offer you so many ways to connect: 

  • Counseling and Support Groups: We help our cancer patients, their family members and caregivers deal with the physical, emotional, social and spiritual aspects of having cancer.
  • Patient Resources: When you have questions or are not feeling well, it’s important to know how to reach our cancer centers and your care team.
  • Integrated Health: A healing environment with special amenities is a wonderful way to ease your mind while going through treatment.

Cancer impacts people and their families in a variety of ways. It is common to feel worried, sad, angry, anxious, or isolated when affected by a serious illness. You might also have feelings of loss — of your health or of control in your life. Georgia Cancer Center is committed to offering all patients the support care they need to get them through this difficult time.

We provide excellent customer service by meeting the cancer information needs of the public, patients, caregivers, and health professionals by providing scientifically-backed cancer information from credible sources and by linking those in need to cancer care specialists and resources.

Our patient advisors have established special amenities designed specifically for cancer patients.  Georgia Cancer Center’s outpatient services amenities include:

  • A Café offering a healthy selection of snacks and beverages.
  • The Image Boutique which features wigs, head wraps, hats and other accessories for cancer patients looking for a fun shopping experience.
  • A meditation area where patients and families can have private quiet time either indoors or outdoors.
  • A rooftop garden outside the Infusion Center.
  • The Pat Sodomka Family Resource Library, which offers educational materials and computers for patients looking for information about their cancer diagnosis and treatment options.
  • Support group meeting spaces: where support groups can bring cancer patients together.
