Patient Info

When You Call

The first voice you hear will likely be that of Bruce Leffler, our administrative assistant. Bruce schedules appointments and tests and helps get messages to everyone. Questions? Need help? Email Bruce.


Appointments for new patients are usually available within a week.


You don't need a referral to make an appointment with us. However, many patients are referred to us by community medical and surgical oncologists once they get an initial diagnosis.

Get a Second Opinion

Our expert doctors offer second opinions either in person here at UVA or via mail. We'll work with medical oncologists, radiation oncologists and neurosurgeons in the community to make sure you get an accurate diagnosis. Find out more about second opinions.
