The Dermatologic Care Center's priority is providing high quality and personalized patient care. The Dermatologic Care Center will provide rapid (within several days) evaluations by dermatologists for cancer patients. Northwestern University physicians from the dermatology, ophthalmology and oncology departments work together to improve cancer patients' lives. In addition, patients are counseled on skin care to gain the best results from their anticancer therapy and enhance their quality of life.
The Robert H Lurie Comprehensive Cancer Center of Northwestern University's SERIES (skin and eye reactions to inhibitors of EGFR and kinases) research program complements the services provided by the Dermatologic Care Center.
