Available to patients through in-office and telehealth visits
UofL Health – Brown Cancer Center offers innovative oncology care to help patients face cancer and still live each moment to the fullest. Our oncology providers are sub-specialists in medical oncology, radiation oncology, surgical oncology and a wide range of other specialists involved in the multidisciplinary treatment of cancer. Additionally, they have further expertise and training for specific cancer sites including breast, lung, head and neck, gynecologic, genitourinary, melanoma, sarcoma, cancers of the blood and bone marrow, brain and spine and gastrointestinal cancers. To help maintain social distancing during the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, our oncology providers offer telehealth appointments in addition to traditional in-clinic appointments.
Telehealth appointments allow patients to see providers over a phone, tablet or computer using a HIPAA-secure application that is similar in use to Skype, Facetime or Facebook Messaging. The application is free and can be easily downloaded.
To schedule an oncology visit -- either in-person or by telehealth – call our Telehealth Hotline at 502-588-4343. One of our access coordinators will be happy to schedule your appointment and walk you through the easy steps to prepare for your telehealth visit if that is your choice.
