Medical Oncology

Our medical oncologists have extensive experience treating cancer. Medical oncologists work with the patient and their care team to plan the best combination of medical therapies. They also work closely with specialists in surgical and radiation oncology as they create treatment plans.

Medical therapies provided include:

  • Chemotherapy in our infusion bays that overlook tidal wetlands and a healing garden to help to ensure patients are comfortable and relaxed during their visits. In addition, each bay has its own flat screen television.
  • Targeted therapies matched to individual tumor mutations through genotyping.
  • Clinical trials of promising new agents.
