Access World-Class Cancer Care from Home

Whether you need care for a new cancer diagnosis, a cancer recurrence or are seeking a second opinion, a UChicago Medicine cancer care physician is available to provide you care via a secure video visit. New patients and returning patients are welcome to schedule a video visit.

Video visits are similar to in-office visits, but rather than traveling for care to see your oncologist or surgeon, you can video chat with them from home. Our cancer experts can recommend treatment options, give second opinions, send prescriptions to your pharmacy, help you plan for surgery or a procedure, and more.

Our cancer program is designated as a Comprehensive Cancer Center by the National Cancer Institute, the most prestigious recognition possible for a cancer institution. Our care team comprises physicians from several specialties, including medical oncology, radiation oncology, surgery, pediatric oncology, gynecologic oncology, cancer risk and prevention, and others. 

Should you need in-person care, such as diagnostic tests, chemotherapy, radiation therapy, a physical exam, surgery or other procedure, we'll arrange for a visit to our main campus in Chicago's Hyde Park neighborhood or to one of our clinics located throughout the greater Chicago area, including New Lenox, Orland Park and the South Loop.
