Our Mission

We provide help and inspire hope to those affected by cancer through high quality, advanced oncology and hematology cancer treatments and leading-edge technology.

We are a Leader in Clinical Trials.

For us, the fight against cancer is an urgent one. We are motivated every day to improve the lives of our patients through our Clinical Trials.

We are Here for You.

As you prepare for your first appointment, we understand you may be scared, sad, or even angry. You’re venturing into the unknown, but not to the unknowing. Our clinical team of cancer specialists are here to help navigate you through; making you feel welcome, answering your questions, and always ready to help you.

We Believe in Second Opinions.

It’s normal to want a second opinion - getting more information or different treatment options helps you feel sure about your diagnosis and treatment plan. Our doctors can look at your test results, talk with you about your personal situation, and maybe give you a different take on your cancer.

Some Answers to Questions that Matter.

Cancer begins in the cells which are the basic building blocks that make up tissue. Tissue is found through out the body.  Sometimes, the process of cell growth goes wrong and new cells form when they are not needed and other old or damaged cells do not die as they should.  This build up of cells many times forms a mass of tissue called a growth or tumor or can circulate through tissues via blood and blood-forming organs. 

Most people with cancer will have only one primary treatment for their cancer. But usually, there is a combination of treatments. The types of treatment will depend on the type of cancer you have and how advanced it is. It is normal to feel overwhelmed and confused. But, talking with your doctor and learning all you can about all the options, including clinical trials, can help you make a good decision.

A series of cycles of treatment is called a course. A treatment course often takes between 3 to 6 months but it can be more or less than that. During that time, you would probably have between 4 to 8 cycles of treatment.

Some doctors use the term “cured” when referring to cancer that doesn’t come back within 5 years. But cancer can still come back, so it’s never truly cured. There is no true cure for any cancer. But new advances are helping move us closer than ever to a true cure.

Please keep in mind every patient's cancer situation is different and there are many questions and answers you will need to ask your doctor concerning your cancer diagnosis and treatment. Talk with your NGOC physician to best understand what’s going on with your cancer care.
