Cancer Specialists Vs. Schar Cancer Institute

Cancer Specialists Vs. Schar Cancer Institute

Does anyone know the difference between a Inova Schar Cancer Institute and Virginia Cancer Specialists? I have referrals to both of these locations in Northern Virginia. I went with Virginia Cancer Specialists in 2012 but wasn’t happy with my Oncologist but I want to try to get the best treatment I can now with this reoccurrence and possibly new liver cancer. Does anyone know how I should begin my research for these facilities or what questions I should ask?

Thank you for the support 💕💖

So sorry that you are going through this journey again. I received and continue to receive excellent care from VCS ever since my diagnosis in 2016. My oncologist Dr. Dar is the best. Like DianeFun recommended make appointments to visit both facilities and see where you feel more comfortable. having the right connection with your medical team is crucial during this process. I have an oncologist friend practicing in MD and he helped with the referrals I received. I wish you peace and healing in your journey.
