Our medical oncologists specialize in diagnosing cancer and delivering treatments such as chemotherapy, targeted therapy and hormone therapy personalized to your needs. They work in tandem with our naturopathic physicians and other supportive therapy clinicians to provide therapies that minimize the side effects of chemotherapy and other treatments.
Your medical oncologist will present you with a cancer treatment plan personalized to your needs. Depending on your plan, your medical oncologist may deliver a combination of chemotherapy, targeted therapy, hormone therapy and/or immunotherapy, with an integrative approach that may help reduce side effects and toxicity.
An individualized approach
Your medical oncologist will communicate regularly with the rest of your care team throughout your treatment. He or she will monitor the progress of your treatment and help manage side effects like gastrointestinal symptoms, fatigue and insomnia, and neuropathy. Your care team takes every measure to help you tolerate treatments, stay active and enjoy a good quality of life.
Throughout your treatment, you’ll undergo diagnostic imaging and lab tests which will allow your medical oncologist to follow the progress of your treatment. If the cancer is resisting treatment, or you are not tolerating it, your medical oncologist will modify your treatment plan or recommend using a different therapy.
