The physicians and staff at OC Blood & Cancer Care welcome you to our website and hope the information contained herein makes the often difficult process of finding state-of-the-art, academically oriented and world-class care for blood disorders and all forms of cancer a bit easier and closer to home.
We understand that a diagnosis of cancer or certain blood disorders comes with a wide array of challenges, questions and concerns. It affects all of you, your family and practically every aspect of your life. With this in mind we assure you the highest level of medical care available, while providing it to you and those close to you with the utmost support, kindness, compassion and respect.
Our board-certified physician-experts specialize in developing and coordinating comprehensive treatment programs specifically for you delivered within our office(s) and usually at the Memorial Care Cancer Institute. Most cases are initially and then periodically reviewed by a panel of physicians (tumor board or multidisciplinary conference) so as to offer a treatment recommendation that is collectively agreed upon as the best choice for a specific patient. We prioritize patient-physician communication, establishing goals of care and recognize that your body-soul-mind needs all of our attention and not just a diagnosis! We are also strong advocates of clinical research, targeted therapy, immunotherapy and the general field of personalized medicine whereupon a recommended therapy is specific to a patient and his/her diagnosis. Moreover, in reaching a treatment recommendation we use all available tools and technologies to helps us understand your cancer and how best to treat it. We believe that this consistent approach confers the best care possible.
Again, we take tremendous pride in the quality of our care and the outcomes our patients achieve. We hope our website conveys this feeling!
