Medical Oncology is the treatment of cancer with medicine, such as chemotherapy, hormones and other injected or oral therapies that target cancer cells. Medical oncologists coordinate and direct a patient’s medical care. Your medical oncologist will provide several of the following services:
- Educate patients on their form of cancer and stage development.
- Explain patients’ treatment options, make recommendations, and work with patients to develop a customized treatment plan that is right for them.
- Monitor the care and treatments patients receive.
- Coordinate various types of treatment that may be needed such as surgery or radiation therapy which may also be prescribed. They will help you through the process of coordinating your visits to these physicians.
Our medical oncologists are backed by a caring and supportive oncology nursing team who is there to help our patients every step of the cancer journey.
