Survivorship Program

A survivorship program is designed to manage long-term and late side effects of cancer and its treatment, monitor for recurrence of disease, ensure appropriate follow-up care and care coordination with all providers (oncologists, surgeons, primary care providers, etc.), monitor for secondary cancers, and provide the appropriate supportive care for emotional, financial, and physical stressors associated with cancer and its treatment.

Comprehensive Prevention and Screening Services for Gynecologic Cancers

There is no way to know which women will get a gynecologic cancer. That's why it is important to pay attention to your body and know what's normal for you, so you can recognize the warning signs. If you have vaginal bleeding that is unusual for you, see a doctor right away. If you notice any other unexplained signs or symptoms that last for two weeks or longer make an appointment for a gynecologic screening.

Becoming a Patient

Most of our patients are referred to us by one of their current physicians, usually their primary care doctor or gynecologist. We ask that all applicable records and test results be forwarded to us at the time that the appointment is requested. After an initial appointment with one of our physicians, we will discuss our diagnosis and recommendations with your doctor(s). We will follow up with your referring doctor at every stage of your treatment. We encourage patients to continue their relationship with the referring physician. We will coordinate and facilitate referrals for radiation therapy, second opinions or specialist consultations.


We want your first appointment to be as productive as possible. We ask that you help us by completing the necessary forms and bringing them along to your appointment. We will also need your insurance card or information.

Breast and Cervical Screening Could Save your Life

If you are one of the many women in our community who are underinsured or uninsured, you may be eligible to receive a free mammogram, breast exam, and pelvic exam, including Pap and human papillomavirus (HPV) tests at UPMC in Central Pa. Don’t delay getting the care you need.
