As You Begin Cancer Treatment
When you hear the words “You have cancer”, it is often difficult to hear or think about anything else. Likely what follows your diagnosis is a treatment plan that has been decided by you and your cancer doctor. These plans are typically specific to treating your cancer and either preventing or managing side effects. You may also have other health conditions that need to be monitored by your primary care physician. We will coordinate with them throughout your journey.
Every patient deserves access to exceptional cancer care, close to home.
Cancer treatment can be intense and span over many years – requiring regular physician visits for chemotherapy and follow-up care – which is why it is critical for patients to obtain personalized care from a community oncology practice close to home. Keeping patients close to their homes, families and support networks lessens these burdens. At Oncology Hematology Associates (OHA), we provide exceptional care and strive to provide the best possible patient experience.
Here are five reasons why a community oncology practice like Oncology Hematology Associates (OHA) is your best choice for cancer care.
- Personalized Care: treatment is customized for the individual patient.
- Convenient Location: community oncology practices are located in the communities close to where you and your caregivers live and work.
- Care for the Whole Patient: OHA offers cancer treatment, care management services, nutrition, social work and other options to help treat the whole person.
- Cutting-edge Care: Patients deserve access to the latest advances and innovations in cancer treatment.
- Affordable Care: Patient’s whose care is delivered in the community oncology setting is proven to be significantly less than in a hospital setting.
Our specialty pharmacy allows patients on oral chemotherapy and ancillary medications to have their prescriptions filled and delivered to their home.
