Radiation Therapy Service Update amid Coronavirus COVID-19

COVID-19 (Novel Coronavirus) Updates

COVID-19, or Novel Coronavirus, is a global concern. At Southeast Radiation Oncology Group (SERO), we’re here to support you. In addition to existing services, we have deployed more virtual visits and are practicing physical distancing to mitigate risk to patients, caregivers and family.

SERO is open and will continue to serve our patients and their families throughout COVID-19 management and response efforts. For more information on hours or setting an appointment, please contact your local cancer treatment center directly.

If you have an existing appointment with SERO and are experiencing symptoms of COVID-19, please contact the location where you are receiving care as soon as possible. For your safety and the safety of other patients, we will reschedule your appointment or set up a virtual meeting. Symptoms include fever, chills, cough, and shortness of breath. Other symptoms of respiratory illness may also be a sign of COVID-19.
