Our goal is to make the highest-quality, FDA-approved treatments available to patients in a comfortable, convenient setting. Patient safety is a top priority. We adhere to guidelines published by leading cancer and hematology specialty organizations, such as ASCO®, NCCN®, ASH®, US National Cancer Institute, and American Cancer Society®. Treatments are administered in office, or in many cases, in the comfort of your own home. Insurance prior authorizations are handled by a professional office staff as a courtesy to our patients. Copay assistance programs from either drug manufacturers or from foundations may be available and are also facilitated by office staff.
