The philosophy of our medical team is patient-centered care that considers all aspects of the patient, including the body, mind, and spirit. “By addressing the whole patient, we hope to positively impact our patient’s response to therapy, quality of life, and survivorship, while decreasing therapy-related toxicity,” says Dr. Klimant.
Our oncologists and advanced practitioners spend ample time with each patient and ensure every patient has an understanding of their disease, the therapies recommended, and what the goals of treatment are.
Common recommended therapies include chemotherapy, targeted therapy, immunotherapy, surgery and/or radiation. Utilizing the concepts of modern oncology, our oncologists genetically characterize cancers when indicated and personalize treatment plans based on the most cutting edge genomic medicine available. Our treatment plan incorporates patient preferences, cultural beliefs, and impacts of prior therapy to develop a truly personalized and unique plan.
