Medical Oncology

Our board certified physicians and dedicated staff provide chemotherapy and hematological services with the highest-quality cancer care. We offer the most advanced outpatient cancer treatments in a positive, comforting community setting. Our staff is always compassionate and our office is comfortable and conveniently located.

Our goal is to relieve the stress and fear of this difficult time while providing the best possible care. If you or someone you know needs chemotherapy or hematological treatment, let our board certified oncologists and experienced staff help you.

Our hematologists and medical oncologists have a combined 100+ years of experience, and have trained at such well-known cancer centers as Roswell Park Cancer Institute, Strong Memorial Hospital, Harvard Medical Center and Johns Hopkins. Our oncology nurses have numerous years of experience, as well as the understanding and concern necessary to meet the needs of cancer patients and their families.

Laboratory services are provided to allow our physicians to closely monitor patients. Our laboratory is regulated by CLIA/COLA and has an excellent record of proficiency testing. We are online with Quest labs for additional testing. CCS Oncology has the capabilities to do bone marrow biopsies and aspirations right in our offices. When appropriate, CBCs are evaluated, peripheral smears are prepared and read, then care is provided.

Our recommendations of care follow NCCN guidelines, which are considered standard of care. These guidelines are developed to be the best possible care as determined through research and patient management. If a clinical trial is a possible option on a patient’s plan of care, the physicians at CCS Oncology will facilitate his or her participation in available trials.

Our patients come to us for a variety of services, including:

  1. Our expertise in medical oncology and hematological malignancies
  2. Recommendation and coordination of care following NCCN guidelines, which are considered standards of care
  3. Outpatient administration of chemotherapy and monoclonal antibodies
  4. Utilization of growth factors to maximize dosage and maintain schedule
  5. Biological modifiers for special tumor types
  6. Instruction on self-injection under the watchful eye of our professional staff
  7. Referral to appropriate support services such as counseling, nursing agencies, nutritional support and hospice care
