Providing Advanced Cancer Care, Close to Home
It is the mission of Oncology Hematology Associates to bring state-of-the-art treatments to patients and their families in a comfortable and caring environment. Treatments for cancers and blood disorders are customized for each patient. Many factors come into play such as the type of cancer, its stage and location, general health, age, and medical history. After reviewing the benefits and risks for your treatment options, you and your doctor will chart a course together. We provide the best treatment available while helping you to continue with your normal daily schedule as much as possible. Patient reactions to treatment may vary, so the best way to prepare is to be informed. We will address all your questions including side effects, treatment frequency, and medications. We will also talk about any possible impact to your work and personal schedules.
Each treatment plan is unique. Our role, after thorough diagnosis and analysis of your particular condition and situation, is to orchestrate the delivery of an agreed upon treatment plan. We provide many treatment services inside our clinic. Some services, such as surgery and radiation therapy, are coordinated through our office.
On-Site Infusion Center
Many patients receive chemotherapy and other medications to treat side effects in the comfort of our unique, specially designed on-site infusion center staffed with oncology certified nurses.
Completing lab tests on-site is more convenient for you and allows for faster results. This speeds up your physician’s ability to make important decisions about your care.
Medically Integrated Pharmacy
Advances in technology include oral anti-cancer medications. These allow eligible patients a convenient way to receive therapy at home, without coming to the clinic for an infusion. Cancer therapy in pill form is great news for patients.
Hair loss is a well-documented side effect of many chemotherapy drugs. The DigniCap® Scalp Cooling System offers you the possibility to minimize hair loss from certain chemotherapy drugs.
A clinical trial is research that involves human participants with the intended outcome of gaining medical knowledge. These research studies may look at ways to prevent, detect, and/or diagnose diseases.
As an adult cancer survivor, you should have a Survivorship Care Plan that summarizes treatment and outlines a plan for your follow-up care. OHA has an in-depth survivorship program for patients.
We are now enhancing patient care by offering telehealth services. In many cases, patients now have the option to meet with their physician, advanced practitioner, nurse, social worker or dietitian through video chat on a computer or mobile device.
