Treatment & Care Philosophy
At the Cancer Clinic, our mission is to provide the most effective care to each of our patients. Since effective cancer treatment involves families and caregivers working closely together with the patient, we are committed to an inclusive model of care that encompasses everybody in a team approach that focuses on integrity, honesty and compassion.
We believe in helping each patient fully understand his or her treatment options, putting them at the center of their own care and empowering them to make their own informed treatment decisions.
Cancer treatments are constantly evolving, and at the Cancer Clinic, we offer patients the option of participating in clinical trials as well as as receiving conventional treatment plans.
Communication is key in cancer treatment, so you will always find us welcoming questions and can count on us to take the time to answer with honesty and openness.

Hello! My name is Emily and I have been a nurse since 2002.
