Operating in approximately 181 domestic and 36 international radiation therapy centers, they provide a uniformly high standard of quality patient care, a full spectrum of advanced treatments, and flexibility in terms of cost considerations without compromising quality care.
21C recently facilitated an open forum discussing, “The Pearls and Myths of Cancer.”
The informative session held at Queen’s College in Barbados, was hosted by Cancer Support Services (CSS) with winning Oncologist, Dr. Anesa Ahamad of the United States facilitating the session.
Trinidadian born Dr. Ahamad fielded a number of questions from persons in the packed hall; questions that ranged from the most common: “Is surgery the best option for any kind of cancer?”
With the numbers rising every day for persons diagnosed with this disease, Elizabeth Paucar Director of International Services, Medical Operations at 21st Century Oncology, Inc. says, “We understand that a cancer diagnosis can be devastating to patients and the next step is usually the wanting to know what to do next; what are the options for treatment; and how much is this all going to cost. It is therefore that our turnaround time for getting this service and information to patients is of about 24 – 48 hours.”
She says the company also offers assistance should a patient then decides to visit them for treatment.
Paucar explained that among other services they provide access to a complete spectrum of comprehensive, integrative cancer treatments by recognized, specialized, experienced physicians and staff, prompt communication with domestic and international physicians, rapid turn-around time for evaluation and treatment and extensive research committed to clinical and scientific excellence in a caring environment.
