Board Certified Nurse Practitioners
Playing a critical role in your treatment plan, our nurse practitioners work very closely with the physicians to educate and monitor you during and after treatment. When nurse practitioners educate you before treatment begins, it helps manage potential side effects more effectively. Nurse practitioners visit with you on a regular basis, as well as check your lab levels, and offer continuing support through your entire journey.
Registered Nurses and Medical Assistants
Our team of registered nurses (RN’s) work in our on-site infusion center offering state-of-the-art techniques for chemotherapy administration. They also work with you after treatment to monitor side effects. The medical assistants work with you during visits to help with scheduling needs and to answer questions. Working together, this group provides non-stop support and care for you and all our patients.
