Chemotherapy treats cancer with drugs that interfere with cancer cell growth and reproduction. These cancer-fighting drugs target and attack cancerous cells that may have spread to other parts of the body. Our medical oncologists and oncology nurses work closely with oncology-trained admixture technicians to manage dosages and monitor patient progress as well as side effects, to ensure the best treatment plans to fight your specific disease.

Laboratory testing is a key component of the detection, diagnosis and treatment of cancer. Our on-site laboratory, which is physician owned and operated, provides quick results for many routine laboratory tests, helping physicians prescribe or adjust your treatment plan, as needed, without unnecessary delays (on-site lab services subject to insurance plan rules).

The financial aspect of dealing with cancer can be complex and overwhelming. Our financial counselors are here to help answer your questions about the cost of treatment and, on your behalf, handle insurance inquiries, verifications and claims processing. For patients whose insurance coverage is inadequate or for those patients who do not have insurance, financial counselors can help identify assistance programs that may offer help in meeting financial obligations. Additionally, we can connect you to services and resources in your community, such as disability, supplemental Medi-Cal programs and medication assistance programs.

For patients who may reach a point in their illness where further attempts at active therapy are either not possible or not advisable, we offer palliative care to maximize quality of life through pain control and aggressive symptom management. Our physicians and nurses have extensive experience in this area. Hospice care is an important part of palliative care and, when appropriate, is carefully coordinated by a patient's physicians, nurses, hospice nurses, medical directors, social workers, clergy (if desired) and volunteers. Hospice focuses on maintaining the comfort and quality of life for patients up to the time of death and providing support for the family during and after a patient's illness. Patients in the greater Sacramento area have access to a number of hospice programs, depending on where they live, and our staff is very comfortable in working with the hospice team members to achieve these goals.
