Comprehensive Cancer Care for Every Patient
Specialized Surgical Care
Our board-certified general surgeons and reconstruction/plastic surgeons are part of our multidisciplinary team specializing in breast cancer, skin cancer, colon and colorectal cancer, and many other cancer types.
Medical & Radiation Oncology
Medical oncologists treat tumors with chemotherapy, immunotherapy and/or targeted therapy, often in coordination with radiation oncologists for precision radiation that destroys cancer cells and shrinks tumors.
Genetic Testing & Counseling
Our cancer risk assessment program identifies and inform patients at higher risk for breast or colon cancer due to genetics. We also develop personalized prevention and screening plans based on those findings.
Hematology Diagnostics & Care
All our oncologists are also board-certified hematologists with extensive experience diagnosing and treating a variety of blood diseases and disorders, clotting abnormalities, and blood cancers such as leukemia.
It’s important to receive care close to home because there is a fatigue associated with traveling for care. In my experience, patient do better if they don’t need to travel at all for their care—it means less stress and exhaustion during treatment, which is critical for improving health.
