Q. I've been diagnosed with uterine cancer and my OB-GYN did not refer me to anyone. How can I find a specialist?
I’d recommend locating a highly skilled gynecologic oncologist. This is a doctor who specializes in the surgical care and medical treatment of women with cancer of the reproductive organs. Keep in mind that you want to choose a doctor who specializes in treating uterine cancer based on his or her credentials, as well as one with whom you feel comfortable and whose style you like.
Cancer.net, the American Society of Clinical Oncology’s website, allows you to search by doctor’s name, organization, location, and specialty
National Cancer Institute provides information about finding a doctor
Ask your primary medical doctor for a referral
Ask a friend or family member if they can recommend a specialist
Most hospitals offer doctor referral services – select a hospital based on its reputation for providing high quality cancer care (e.g., NCI designated facility)
