Care Close to Home: Why it’s Important

Dr. Tony Jaslowski joins us today to discuss why providing cancer care close to home is important. We discuss the travel expenses often associated with receiving cancer treatments and why they often cause patients to delay their treatment. We discuss how often many cancer patients need to visit the oncologist for cancer treatments and how they typically feel after a round of treatment. We also discuss the psychological benefits of receiving cancer treatment at medical facilities closer to home as well as how outreach clinics impact the local communities.

Dr. Tony Jaslowski is a Medical Oncologist and Hematologist at Green Bay Oncology and a Fellow of the American College of Physicians. He received his Bachelor’s degree from the United States Air Force Academy and earned his medical degree from Loyola University Stritch School of Medicine. Tony completed his internship and fellowship at Wilford Hall Medical Center at Lackland Air Force Base in Texas. Prior to joining the Green Bay Oncology family, Tony served as a military consultant to the Surgeon General for medical oncology and hematology and was twice awarded the Humanitarian of the Year Award by Keesler Air Force Base in Mississippi. Tony is passionate about ensuring patients are provided with the very best treatment choices to fight cancer. During his free time, Tony enjoys spending time with his wife and four children, playing racquetball at the YMCA, biking, and gardening.

“It’s not ‘what’s convenient for me?’ or ‘what’s convenient for the staff?’ It’s ‘what’s best for the patient and their families?”
– Dr. Tony Jaslowski
