Our Philosophy Is to Treat the Whole Patient, Not Just Their Cancer.

Many people talk about battling cancer. It's certainly the fight of your life and we're your medical army. It's also important to live with cancer – celebrating every moment and enjoying the highest quality of life available.

Our specialists use every resource there is to treat the various stages of cancer so that our patients can enjoy time... to be with family, to travel, to work... to live. Below are some ways we accomplish this:

  • Working with each patient and their family to determine the level of treatment to fight active cancer
  • Assigning a personal Cancer Nurse Navigator to help guide patients through their treatment and recovery process
  • Monitoring patients who are cancer free for any recurrence
  • Finding therapies that minimize side effects such as anti-nausea medications, advanced pain management, and massage therapy
  • Complementary therapies, such as yoga, acupuncture and music therapy, that reduce side effects or improve overall physical and mental health
  • Offering social support including spiritual, emotional and mental health
  • Researching new therapies and technologies, including clinical trials
  • Consulting with other specialists throughout the country, including VCU Massey Cancer Center in Richmond, VA
  • Hosting support groups and tips for coping with cancer
  • Networking with other important resources available in the community

Dedicated to Quality Outcomes

We value the quality of care we provide to our patients and their families. That's why we think its vital that all of our medical specialists have the most advanced training available.

Having the most advanced technology and services available for our community also demonstrates our quality.
