Over her years in a traditional oncology practice, Dr. Monroe, a practicing oncologist, found the changes in healthcare made it more and more challenging to give her patients the time and support they needed. When her own family members were diagnosed with cancer she realized how difficult it can be for patients to navigate their way through a cancer diagnosis and make informed treatment decisions. Using her medical expertise, Dr Monroe was able to help her family but she realized there had to be a better way to bridge the gap between what patients and families dealing with a cancer diagnosis need and that which can be provided by a traditional oncology practice. She therefore started Cancer Consulting Services.
After retiring from his pediatric oncology practice Dr. Weiner wanted to continue to help cancer patients and their families. As a cancer survivor himself and the parent of a cancer survivor, he knows first-hand how valuable it can be to have professional guidance in dealing with a cancer diagnosis.

"Dr. Monroe gives me a feeling of hope and trustworthiness. She is so competent, compassionate, and really listens. I am always in a better place emotionally after meeting with her because I trust her judgement in prescribing my care.”
“I have the utmost confidence in Dr. Monroe. She is kind, helpful and knowledgeable and understands my situation.”
“One of the hardest things after being diagnosed with cancer is trying to sort through everything and figure out what to do....Julie is an amazing resource for me as I go through my cancer treatment. She reviews all the test results, explains everything from A to Z, filling in the gaps, does her own research and discusses the different options. She really helps me understand what I'm up against and empowers me to make the best choice for me. She's been a lifesaver, literally!”
Countless times my husband and I have wondered how people manage through this ordeal without this kind of support. Even with top-ranked physicians providing my care it was still hugely helpful to have Dr. Monroe providing consultation. She informed our decision-making and increased our comfort level with each step of the process. My doctors didn't have the time to REALLY get to know ME; It was Dr. Monroe that put it all together in a way that made sense to us. Dr. Monroe has a wonderful disposition - she is thorough and knowledgeable, and she appropriately balances being caring and understanding with being frank and realistic. As a survivor, I am thankful for many things, not the least of which is having Dr. Monroe on my team.
When my wife was first diagnosed with breast cancer, we were overwhelmed with a myriad of emotions, choices and new realities as a family. The speed with which certain potentially life altering decisions needed to be made was just as startling as the diagnosis itself. Dr. Monroe was invaluable to my wife and I as we attempted to process, in real time, the vast amount of information we were receiving from several different physicians (each of which had a different opinion as to how to best proceed). Dr. Monroe was a trusted advisor that brought an impartial perspective on the information we were receiving, the quality of care, and the advantages and disadvantages of proceeding with different treatment plans. We feel incredibly fortunate to have had Dr. Monroe's counsel throughout the process and we highly, highly recommend her services.
