A cancer diagnosis often comes with little warning. An accurate diagnosis is critical for receiving the most effective cancer treatment as early as possible. Natalie Warren Bryant Cancer Center physicians are trained to evaluate and treat patients with cancer and hematologic disorders (involving the blood and blood-forming organs).
Medical oncologists specialize in diagnosing and treating cancer using chemotherapy, hormonal therapy, biological therapy and targeted therapy. In addition to overseeing treatments such as these, our medical oncologists also provide consistent care for our patients in the following ways:
- Educating the patient about his or her form of cancer and the stages of its development
- Discussing treatment options and making recommendations that are right for that particular patient
- Monitoring the care and treatment of the patient throughout the course of the disease
- Working with the patient to improve the quality of life through healing therapy and in the management of pain and symptoms
