Visit Our Cancer Center for Treatment, Empathy, and Hope
In our cancer center, we view ourselves as more than physicians. We are a line of hope for patients who are struggling with a cancer diagnosis and seeking help in their recovery. A cancer diagnosis does not mean that the end is here. A cancer diagnosis is simply the invitation to fight. With our help, patients can gain the tools they need to fight this disease and the treatments necessary to recover.
Each patient is different and so is their diagnosis along with what treatments will be necessary to help them recover. What is consistent is our ability to help. For that reason, we encourage anyone who has been diagnosed with cancer to call our office and schedule an appointment as soon as possible.
We educate patients in our cancer center
A diagnosis of cancer can be incredibly frightening, especially since many people are unsure of what cancer actually is. We do our best to educate patients so they can be aware of what they are dealing with, how cancer spreads and to understand the science behind the treatments that we suggest.
Essentially, cancer is a disease where there is an excessive growth of abnormal cells. These are cells that should not be in the body. When these cells grow, they have the ability to spread and destroy other healthy tissues that they come in contact with. Cancer can occur anywhere in the body, so it is possible to have cancer in organs, blood or even bones.
Different types of cancers spread at different rates, but what remains true for all of them is that early cancer diagnoses and treatment increase the likelihood that a patient will be able to beat the disease.
We are empathetic and listen to our patients
Our years of practice enables us to understand what many of our patients and their families are going through. We help so many patients and offer a high level of understanding and empathy that can make it easier for our patients to openly discuss their feelings and concerns. We believe that it is important to look forward and to help patients create plans and stick with treatments that are going to give them the best possibility of recovery.
Still, we know that there is more to fighting cancer than the physical aspects of it. It also requires emotional and mental strength and fortitude, along with a certain level of hope. We help our patients in this area as well, offering encouragement along every step of their recovery journey.
