Treatment Approach At POC Centers
When you arrive at our center, your medical oncologist will review your medical history and perform a full diagnostic evaluation, then present you with a treatment plan based on your specific diagnosis.
Chemotherapy, Hormonal therapy, targeted therapy and immunotherapy
Chemotherapy, Hormonal therapy, targeted and immunotherapy all are systemic treatment and available at POC centers
Chemotherapy is an important part of treatment for many of our patients. Our physicians use leading treatment protocols and practice evidence-based medicine.
We strive to find the right chemotherapy drug, or combination of drugs, for each person. We may use tests to identify an appropriate drug combination for your disease and help you avoid unnecessary toxicity.
If chemotherapy is part of your treatment plan, your medical oncologist will coordinate your dosage and schedule. You may receive chemotherapy alone, or in combination with other treatment modalities like targeted therapies, surgery and/or radiation therapy.
Throughout your treatment, your medical oncologist will monitor the effectiveness of your chemotherapy regimen and modify your treatment plan accordingly.
Managing chemotherapy side effects
While chemotherapy targets cancer cells, it can also damage healthy cells and cause unpleasant side effects, such as nausea, vomiting, hair loss, fatigue and mouth sores. Your dedicated care team will provide a variety of supportive care services to help you prevent or manage side effects throughout your chemotherapy treatment.
