Our Philosophy of Care

Cancer treatment can be intense, complex and span many years. It can also be emotionally, physically and financially stressful. That’s why it’s critical for patients to obtain personalized care from a community oncology practice.

Cancer care can be complex and stressful – physically, emotionally and financially. Hope and optimism are important components for quality of life in cancer survivorship. At Hematology/Oncology Clinic, we strive to provide the best possible patient experience – providing compassionate and supportive cancer care, close to home.

Personalized Care

As a community clinic, our team can take the time to get to know each patient and tailor treatment with support to meet their needs.

Care Beyond Chemo

Our specialized oncology care nurses assist patients with managing symptoms, providing nutritional guidance, social work support and financial counseling.

Affordable Care

In addition to providing a comfortable, more personalized environment, we provide high-quality, state-of-the-art care at lower costs to patients and their insurance providers.

Convenient Location

Our clinics are in convenient locations, with physicians and other providers, in-house laboratory, pathology, infusion and pharmacy services all under one roof.


Clinical research trials can provide more treatment options. Most cancer drugs approved for use in the U.S. are studied in clinical trials conducted through community-based practices.
