Wait times represent the average estimated length of time from registration to being assigned a "first provider" (a doctor, nurse practitioner or physician assistant). Times displayed for Atlantic Health Systems are:

  • Reported as an average of wait times for the previous 2 hours of patients that have presented to the emergency department and have been seen by a provider
  • Refreshed at least every 15 minutes

Many circumstances can affect wait times - for example, patients arriving by ambulance or with life-threatening injuries or illnesses. Patients with severe conditions will be seen before those with less-serious problems or ailments. These times are provided for informational purposes only and cannot be guaranteed upon arrival.

Melanoma Treatment Options

Atlantic Health System Cancer Care provides comfortable, effective melanoma treatment in a patient-centered environment. Our multidisciplinary approach combines the expertise of board-certified surgeons, medical oncologists, pathologists, radiation oncologists and nurses – to treat all forms of melanoma, including those in the skin, mucous membranes and eyes. If melanoma has spread to other parts of the body, such as the brain, skeletal system, or major organs, a comprehensive treatment plan will be designed to aggressively attack the cancer to try to improve the patient’s prognosis. Our physicians are also experts in the treatment of rare or aggressive skin cancers, such as Merkel cell cancer, invasive or metastatic squamous cell skin cancer and others.

We also offer immunotherapy and surgical treatment for melanoma. In addition, we participate in multiple clinical trials, most available only at select melanoma centers in the United States and around the world, to provide our patients with direct access to the newest medications and treatments available.

Melanoma services may vary by location. Please confirm when booking an appointment.
