Medical oncology is a field of medicine focused on diagnosing and treating cancer by using chemotherapy and other drugs, such as biological and hormonal therapy. A medical oncologist at Cancer Treatment Centers of America® (CTCA) leads the patient’s care team, manages the patient’s course of treatment and coordinates with other doctors and clinicians. Depending on various factors, including your type of cancer and stage, a medical oncologist may refer you to other doctors at CTCA®, including surgical oncologists and radiation oncologists.  

The medical oncologists at our five state-of-the-art cancer hospitals meet with patients to discuss their general health backgrounds and collect medical records. Along with other doctors and clinicians on the patient’s care team, they may conduct physical exams and order diagnostic tests to make an informed diagnosis. Our hospitals were designed to deliver integrative, comprehensive cancer care, with patients receiving all treatments, diagnostics and other procedures under one roof. Our medical oncologists meet with patients to discuss the diagnosis and provide patients with a variety of treatment options. To manage potential treatment-related side effects, supportive therapies are also available. The nutritionists, rehabilitation therapists, naturopathic clinicians and other supportive care clinicians at CTCA work together with your medical oncologist to reduce side effects and improve quality of life.

If chemotherapy is part of your treatment plan, your medical oncologist will coordinate your dosage and schedule. Throughout your care, your medical oncologist will monitor your chemotherapy regimen, making adjustments when necessary, as part of the CTCA commitment to providing personalized cancer care.
