In brief: To be honest

I humbly feel we are the cancer specialists offering the widest breadth of cancer care.
No other oncology specialist takes care of cancers from head to toe, children $ benign tumors. We perform exams like ENT scopes, pelvic exams & must be aware of chemo & surgery options for each site & stage of disease. We perform procedures placing applicators into organs /cancer to deliver brachytherapy.
