Medical & Radiation Oncologists
Medical Oncologists are physicians who are specially trained to manage patients with cancer and blood disorders. In the hospital and in doctors’ out-patient offices there are nurses trained in administering chemotherapy. These specialized nurses focus on the unique circumstances and needs of cancer patients and their families. Chemotherapy treatment plans are based upon published guidelines from the National Comprehensive Cancer Network and American Society of Clinical Oncology. In hospital chemotherapy preparation is supervised and verified for safety by our staff pharmacists. Medical Oncologists available in your community:
Radiation Oncologists are physicians who specialize in the treatment of cancer patients using radiation as the modality of treatment. Roughly half of all cancer patients need radiation therapy at some point during their illness. Radiation can be used as a curative treatment and can also be used to relieve symptoms such as bone pain in patients with advanced disease. The Radiation Oncologist selects the most effective radiation technique for every individual patient in order to destroy cancer cells while sparing the normal surrounding tissue. The process of these treatments is not painful, as patients cannot see, smell, taste, hear, or feel the radiation.
