Physicians from around the world trust the UCLA Brain Tumor Program to care for their patients. Whether you would like us to assume your patient’s cancer care or are seeking expert consultation, we provide timely and detailed feedback. We also provide same- and next-day appointments whenever medically necessary.
UCLA is home to one of the world’s leading centers for the research, diagnosis and treatment of brain tumors. We offer personalized, precision therapies that rely on the most advanced imaging and surgical tools, the latest chemotherapy agents and radiotherapy, and the most promising and innovative clinical trials.
Highlights of our program include:
We consider referring physicians trusted partners, and we are honored you’re placing your trust in our program. We offer comprehensive care and treatment for more than 30 types of brain tumors. That list includes tumors in hard-to-reach locations and rare conditions, such as glioblastomas. UCLA is also among the top glioma programs in the country.
To refer a patient: We make it easy for referring physicians to work with us. One call is all it takes to refer your patient to UCLA. Our experienced team of nurse navigators work with our physician team to determine which specialist(s) your patient needs to see and coordinates the initial appointments.
We usually see new patients within a week; however, if your patient needs immediate care, we can often accommodate same-day requests.
