Cancer Care (Oncology) Services are available at the medical center in St. Croix Falls and at the Frederic Clinic through the availability of oncologists (cancer specialists), Daniel Schneider, MD and Tori Weinzerl-Lien, FNP along with oncology nurses who provide chemotherapy, transfusions, and other nursing care for cancer patients. The Cancer Care team work closely with the staff at the Cancer Center of Western Wisconsin to coordinate all aspects of patients’ treatment, including communication between them and their local or metro area physicians.
Services provided include:
- Laboratory/radiology tests
- Infusion Services
- Cancer directed treatments
- Genetic Testing
Staff support patients and their family members with information on each particular cancer, how best to cope with this disease, and sources of individual and group support, as well as help with approaching the diagnosis in a hopeful, healthy manner. Services also include setting up pre-treatment lab tests, administering medications, monitoring progress between treatments, and regularly reporting to each patient’s oncologist and family physician.
Individuals in need of chemotherapy services do not need to be in the care of an SCRMC physician; our clinic staff will work with an individual’s own family physician and oncologist to make treatment possible.
