We encourage you to contact our collaborative team of doctors who are deeply dedicated to fighting neuroendocrine tumors. These doctors, including surgeons, medical oncologists, radiation oncologists, pathologists, gastroenterologists, endocrinologists, interventional radiologists, radiologists, and a geneticist, are supported by an even larger group of scientists, nurse practitioners, and physician assistants. They are highly experienced at taking care of patients with neuroendocrine tumors because of the large numbers of patients that visit our institution from all over the world. We sincerely believe that high volume centers have the best outcomes with the lowest rates of complications following treatment.

When you access us through one of our coordinators, they will try to determine how you can most successfully and efficiently be treated. Depending on the imaging, the site of origin of your neuroendocrine tumor, and other tests that you have already had, we may elect to perform further diagnostic testing at this Johns Hopkins. In other instances you will be referred directly to the organ-based team best equipped to handle your case.

We encourage you to contact our referral coordinator Suzanne Smallwood-Massey, at 877-LIVER99 (548-3799) or by e-mail: hopkinslivercenter@jhmi.edu.

Our coordinator will make every effort to schedule your appointment within a week. We encourage you to take advantage of our tremendous experience in caring for patients with neuroendocrine tumors. It is extremely important that you choose a team of specialists with the most up to date knowledge, broad experience, and compassion. We pledge to take great care of you.
