Surgeons and medical oncologists on our team have experience with most cancers, including those of the breast, gastrointestinal tract, head and neck, lung, thyroid and prostate, as well as gynecologic cancers, multiple myeloma and sarcomas.
Services include personalized treatment for both newly diagnosed and metastatic cancers, as well as ongoing surveillance and survivorship care. Immunotherapy, chemotherapy, lab and imaging services are available on-site.
For patients with breast cancer or benign breast conditions, breast surgeons provide evaluation and diagnosis, along with the latest minimally invasive techniques, such as ultrasound-guided and fine needle aspiration biopsies. We also offer screening and diagnostic mammography.
Genetic testing and counseling are available at this location. Genetic counselors can provide personalized recommendations to reduce your cancer risk, including guidance on cancer screening and preventive measures.
Cancer care is one of many specialties at the Berkeley Outpatient Center, a collaboration between UCSF Health and John Muir Health. Our partnership gives you access to a wide range of medical services from two leading health systems under one roof.
