How Many Doctors Do I Need for Colon Cancer?

Dr. Dayyani believes that the best outcomes for patients happen when a patient is being taken care of by a colon cancer team instead of a single doctor. He explains why that’s the case in this video.

Using an expert team for colon cancer care reduces the amount of time spent moving information between different specialists. This is important, Dr. Dayyani says. “Fragmented care where you have to go to different places to gather pieces of information almost always are associated with inferior outcomes”

Dr. Farshid Dayyani earned his medical degree in Munich, Germany at Ludwig-Maximilians Universitaet before completing his internal medicine internship and residency at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center in Boston, Mass. He then completed his fellowship in medical oncology at The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center in Houston. Board certified in both internal medicine and medical oncology, Dr. Dayyani specializes in cancers of the genitourinary and gastrointestinal systems.
