There is no such thing as a routine cancer treatment.
Each cancer diagnosis is as unique as the person who receives the diagnosis. Even those cancers that affect specific parts of the body may react differently from person to person. That is why there is no such thing as a cookie-cutter approach to cancer treatment.
For example, did you know that even though hematology is a distinct subtype of medicine, it often overlaps with oncology, which is the study of cancer? Because of this, many oncologists, or cancer doctors, also are board-certified hematologists.
Longstreet Clinic understands this, and that is why we developed our Cancer Center with top-level oncologists and hematologists so that we may look closely at each diagnosis and determine the optimum treatment for the patient.
Because of the specific challenges involved in each case, we also provide top-level hematologists to our cancer patients dealing with blood- and bone marrow-related cancers, including leukemia, lymphoma, and multiple myeloma.
Oncology is the study and treatment of cancer – specifically tumors. As we have learned through the years, no two tumors are alike. Yet tumors can respond in specific ways to different types of treatments, and our board-certified oncologists are continually studying and learning the latest treatment methods and studies so that our patients may receive the best care available.
Oncology is a constantly evolving and developing field. Thus, Longstreet Clinic works to ensure that its patients receive the latest and most advanced treatments available. That includes types of radiation, chemotherapy, hormonal therapy, and beyond.
Even when you have overcome your diagnosis and defeated your cancer, our oncologists will continue to work with you to ensure that you maintain optimum health and keep your cancer from returning.
That is because it is their goal to provide you with the most thorough care possible. This is accomplished by keeping wait times at a minimum and by being available 24 hours a day. Even if you’re experiencing an emergency and the office is closed, an answering service message will ensure you are able to reach the physician on-call.
The same goes for hematology.
Whether you are suffering from leukemia, lymphoma (Hodgkin or non-Hodgkin), or multiple myeloma, our board-certified hematologists will be there for you each step of the way. We do this by offering several cutting-edge treatments in our state-of-the-art cancer center.
And even if you do not suffer from cancer but from a non-cancerous blood condition such as anemia, sickle cell disease, or hemophilia, our hematology department will have the answers for you.
No matter your needs, our oncologists and/or hematologists – who often are one in the same – will provide you with as much access to care as possible in one convenient location.
Our onsite pharmacy makes it simple to acquire specific drugs quickly, and our onsite lab will ensure reliable results in an accurate and efficient manner. This matters to us because we understand that following your course of treatment, blood tests are required to monitor your progress.
Our staff understands that this is a complicated and trying time for you and your loved ones. A cancer diagnosis is often stressful, and our goal is to help you meet that challenge with as much knowledge and confidence possible. We accomplish this by keeping wait times within our office to a minimum and providing access to a physician 24 hours a day.
