Gynecologic Oncology at the John B. Amos Cancer Center
Board-certified gynecologic oncologists are specialists whose assistance is sought when cancers of the female reproductive system are suspected or diagnosed. Gynecologic oncologists are fully trained OB/GYNs who have also undergone rigorous fellowship training in cancer-related surgeries, the use of chemotherapy and the placement of intraoperative devices for radiotherapy.
We work by appointment to make sure your visit with us is as pleasant and convenient as possible. Our normal office hours are Monday through Friday, 8 a.m.-5 p.m. and we’re closed for appointments from noon to 2 p.m. Patients are seen in the office Monday-Friday; however, two days per week are reserved for surgery. If you have an urgent need, please call our office a 706- 320-8700 for immediate care.
If you are unable to keep a scheduled appointment, please call us 24 hours in advance. Generally, we see patients in order of appointment time; however, patients who are seriously ill and require immediate treatment must receive priority.
Urgent Situations and Emergencies
Emergencies always receive top priority, regardless of the time or the day. If you have an urgent problem, call our office for advice on the best course of action. Our office phone is answered 24 hours a day and an answering service is available to assist our patients at times when the office is closed.
In an extreme, life threatening emergency, call 911 or report to the nearest hospital emergency department at once. The emergency department staff will confer with the healthcare provider on call and make arrangements for immediate treatment.
