Making an Appointment
You can trust the professionals at the Lynn Cancer Institute to guide you
through your treatment with a combination of compassion and forward-thinking
medicine. To schedule an appointment, please call 561.955.LYNN (5966).
Multimodality Cancer Care
While traditional cancer treatment requires patients to travel from physician
to physician and manage their own scheduling, the Sandler Pavilion centralizes
services in one location. This type of treatment, called multimodality
care, simplifies the entire process by bringing the entire medical team
to the patient. Each multimodality team is comprised of physicians and
healthcare professionals who specialize in a specific cancer such as breast,
head and neck, thoracic, urological, gastrointestinal or hepotobiliary
including pancreatic cancer. The team develops standards of care for the
specific cancer type that incorporate the most advanced technology and
treatments available, as well as new treatment modalities available only
through clinical trials.
On an initial visit, a patient might meet with a surgeon, radiation oncologist,
medical oncologist, nurse coordinator, social worker and other specialists.
The team collaborates on a diagnosis and recommends treatment options.
Appointments are scheduled, questions are answered and our patients stay
focused on recovery. For more information, please call 561.955.MMCS (561.955.6627).
Oncology Social Worker
The oncology social workers are a group of board certified, licensed clinicians
who meet with patients and families to assist in gathering community resources
and to help address the emotional needs and concerns of patients and families
while they are coping with a diagnosis of cancer. Our oncology social
workers meet with patients and families throughout the spectrum of care,
starting at diagnosis, through treatment and survivorship. The oncology
social work team is trained to do individual, family and group counseling.
For more information, please call the psychosocial services department
at 877.272.4422 or email us at
The Lynn Cancer Institute has a Certified Specialist in Oncology Nutrition
and Registered Dietitian on-site that will help you learn how proper diet
and exercise can help you when it comes to battling cancer. Our dietitian
will work one-on-one or through group lectures to help you improve quality
of life, minimize side effects of treatment, and possibly reduce the risk
of disease progression. For more information, please call 561.955.5637.

Counselor’s role is to help patients through the insurance process
