Gastrointestinal (GI) Cancer Specialists at Compass Oncology

Trusted Cancer Care for GI Cancer Patients in Portland & Vancouver

At Compass Oncology, we provide a collaborative, holistic approach to cancer care delivered by a comprehensive treatment team of leading specialists in medical oncology, radiation oncology, diagnostics, pathology, and genetic risk evaluation.

Because gastrointestinal cancer is the term used for the group of cancers that affects the GI tract, the diagnosis and treatment can be complex. GI cancers include common cancers like colorectal, esophageal, pancreatic, stomach, and liver cancer. Treatment is dependent on the type of GI cancer, the severity of the cancer, and your age, and it can require a combination of cancer treatments for the best outcome. 

Access to our multi-disciplinary team of GI cancer care experts from the time of diagnosis leads to effective communication and a more personalized, cohesive treatment plan. In addition to treating newly diagnosed gastrointestinal cancer patients, Compass GI Specialists provide genetic testing, financial counseling, and many support groups that will help every step of the way.

Our gastrointestinal cancer specialists are a trusted resource for cancer care in the Portland-Vancouver metro area for patients seeking a second opinion on a cancer diagnosis or treatment plan. Patients find it helpful to have access to consult with a medical oncologist or a radiation oncologist prior to making a final decision on a treatment plan.
