We focus on wellness, prevention, and health promotion.

Cancer survivors require specialized care to meet their individual needs, assess for cancer recurrence, and monitor late and long-term side effects.

The goal of survivorship care is to optimize a patient’s quality of life by empowering them to want to be healthy and engage in healthy activities.

We offer three survivorship clinics.

Medical Oncology

Our medical oncology survivorship clinic specializes in long-term care needs for cancer survivors who have been treated with cancer therapies like chemotherapy, biotherapy, surgery, and radiation. Part of our clinic works with adults and another focuses on the special needs of children and adolescents.

Cancer treatment can cause unwanted side effects like fatigue, pain, memory issues, growth and hormone problems, and depression and anxiety. We provide care that’s designed to address and manage these challenges.
