Melanoma Care

Melanoma can be deadly. But your chances of a full cure are excellent if your skin cancer is caught early, before your melanoma spreads. Our preeminent dermatologists and dermatologic surgeons, employing the most current diagnostic and treatment techniques, offer great hope for your melanoma diagnosis.

We’re a complete-care skin cancer clinic, offering a wide array of diagnostic services and treatment methods. Our Scott & White Skin Cancer Team has broad knowledge and experience in diagnosing and treating all forms of melanoma and other cancers of the skin.

Comprehensive, Personalized Care

Sophisticated cancer care takes teamwork — the collaboration of a large group of specialists and subspecialists. That’s why at Scott & White you’ll have an Integrated Care Team dedicated to your care.

Your multidisciplinary team of diagnostic and interventional radiologists; surgical, radiation and medical oncologists — and many others — focuses on you and your care. And they do so in most cases in one location. Our physicians come to you.

Though you'll have a team of specialists and subspecialists overseeing your care, you'll have one lead physician. You'll know your doctor and your doctor will know you. Personalized care is the Scott & White way.

Your lead physician will take the time to listen to you and your concerns. The two of you will talk about your cancer and its effects on you and your loved ones.

In collaboration, your Integrated Care Team will meet to discuss your specific needs and determine the best treatment options for you to consider. Then your lead physician will talk with you about the team’s recommendations.

Together, you and your lead physician can then decide which treatment plan is right for you and your quality of life. You’ll receive an individualized treatment plan, customized just for you. Throughout your care at Scott & White, your team will meet regularly to discuss your care and revise your treatment plan based on your needs.

It’s all part of our mission to provide you with comprehensive, personalized care.
