Choice Cancer Care offers a full spectrum of inpatient and outpatient care including on-site imaging, such as PET and CT scanning. Radiation and chemotherapy, while the standard for the treatment of cancer, are not the only options. The medical staff will discuss with the patient unique plans including traditional as well as alternative treatments such as prostate seed therapy, hormonal treatment, and clinical trials.
Once diagnosed, the treatment plan can be influenced by many factors including a patient’s condition, cancer type and goal of treatment. These treatments will be based on whether it is to eradicate cancer or keep it from spreading to other areas of the body. The team of experienced professionals will provide support for patients and their families to establish the best treatment plan possible.
The difference with Choice Cancer Care is the care patients receive, and the expertise of the physicians to identify a unique plan for cancer treatment. The treatment of cancer is a journey, and the medical team will analyze the situation and devise a cancer treatment plan based on each patient’s needs for an overall all goal to live a healthy life with emotional well-being.
