We are not your normal cancer center. What sets us apart is that you are at the center of everything we do. We start by making things convenient, and pleasant: Valet parking. A soothing infusion center, with the option of taking treatment outside. An onsite pharmacy and lab. Courtesy transportation, if needed.But what leaves a lasting impression goes deeper than convenience, beginning with your first meeting with the patient navigator. A cancer survivor and nurse, she immediately makes you feel at home as she answers your questions, helps you process your emotions, and guides you to the resources you need. By the time you meet with one of our compassionate oncologists, it hits you . . . you haven’t come to ‘a’ center. You are at THE center of a support team, and you are not alone.
In addition to the experience and skill of our oncologists,
a team of professionals will continue to guide you through diagnosis, treatment
and into survivorship. That team
