Patient Centered Care: 

Our staff works with each individual patient throughout your entire journey with us.  You will learn about your

chemo/bio/immunotherapy drugs and their most common side effects.  In addition, you will learn how important your

nutrition is and that eating the right kinds of foods during your treatment can help you feel better and stay stronger. 

Eating right and staying stronger will help you to manage the side effects of either your chemotherapy and/or radiation t

therapy with the minimal effect on your quality of life.
