The Georgia Center for Total Cancer Care—a comprehensive cancer care center bringing together physicians from Atlanta Oncology Associates (AOA) and Georgia Cancer Specialists (GCS)—recently held a ribbon-cutting ceremony to celebrate its opening at Cowles Clinic in Greensboro.
Over 200 attended the ceremony, held at the Center—on the campus of Cowles Clinic—on Friday, April 13 at 6 p.m.
Dr. Bob Cowles, who established Cowles Clinic in 2004 after relocating his Atlanta based urology practice to Greensboro, welcomed the attendees and provided the ceremony’s closing remarks.
“We’re proud to have such esteemed physicians on board working together to treat cancer in Georgia,” Dr. Cowles said. “Today’s ceremony represents a giant leap forward in the quality of cancer care offered in the Lake Oconee area.”
Dr. Dale McCord of AOA, Dr. Wendy Hawke Lenz of GCS, State Representative Mickey Channell, and State Senator Jim Whitehead also provided brief addresses.
“It’s an exciting time for our patients,” said Dr. Dale McCord, President/CEO of AOA, one of the largest radiation therapy practices in the southeast. “As we continue to grow and expand our services, Georgia’s cancer community can expect to receive the best in cancer care.”
Dr. Laura Weakland and Dr. Cheryl Jones of GCS—the largest oncology/hematology practice in the southeast—currently practice at Cowles Clinic, along with AOA physicians Dr. Erich Randolph and Dr. David Lowther.
“I’m thrilled at the opening of our Cowles Clinic office,” said Dr. Jones. “It’s another wonderful opportunity for us to serve Georgia’s cancer patients.”
