If You Need a Second Opinion
At The Ivy Center we offer a valuable second opinion, which may in turn provide a different option, such as the tumor being operable or a different course of treatment for the tumor.
To create a place where brain tumor patients and their families have access to the best care and the latest clinical research available.
"I am committed to making new advances in brain cancer treatment. The Ivy Center is uniquely positioned to evaluate alternative causes and therapeutic strategies that could have a significant impact for patients in the Pacific Northwest and beyond."
