For newly diagnosed individuals and their families, cancer can be a frightening disease. To help ease your fears and make the fight against cancer more manageable for everyone involved, we recommend that you take time to learn about the type of cancer that you have been diagnosed with, understand all of the treatment options that are available to you, and then coordinate all of the aspects of that treatment with our facility and through any additional specialists that are recommended to you.
Our team of physicians, nurses and other staff members at Hematology & Oncology Associates of RI work together to provide you with complete care for your cancer, coordinating every aspect of your treatment. This includes the analysis of your diagnosis, the development of a comprehensive treatment strategy, suggesting clinical trials for patients when it is appropriate and providing support for medical insurance, financial and drug acquisition.
As an independent oncology clinic we work closely with most hospitals in Rhode Island, as well as other cancer care specialists and health care professionals to provide each patient with the most complete and comprehensive care possible. Complete chemotherapy treatments can be received on-site at Hematology & Oncology Associates of RI, preventing you from having to go to multiple clinics throughout your treatment. We also offer our patients a wide variety of patient advocacy and support services, as well as access to cutting edge treatment and clinical research.
If surgery, radiation therapy, or other treatments are needed, we will also recommend the most appropriate resources and work with you to effectively coordinate communication to ensure that you are receiving the precise treatment that you need, when you need it. Our team will provide you with access to integrative programs and we make it our policy to treat each patient as a whole individual. It is our goal at Hematology & Oncology Associates of RI to provide you with the absolute highest quality of care with compassion and integrity.
