Medical Oncology & Hematology

You are more than your diagnosis.

CBCC brings together a dedicated team of medical professionals to assist you and your loved ones with a broad range of issues related to your diagnosis, treatment, and long-term health. Our team isn’t just here to treat cancer, but to treat YOU, including moral and emotional support.

Medical Oncology

Led by Dr. Ravi Patel, our medical oncology team is composed of highly specialized experts with advanced training in cancer treatment and diagnosis.

We understand how a cancer diagnosis can make you feel overwhelmed and lacking control. Your medical oncologist will work side-by-side with you and your loved ones to evaluate your disease, prepare a treatment plan you are comfortable with, collaborate with the rest of your medical team, and monitor your progress every step of the way to help you regain your sense of control and autonomy.

Your skilled health care team, together with you and your family, will develop your treatment plan, which will often combine different treatment modalities to reach the best outcome. The team will take the time to help you understand the advantages and disadvantages of your treatment options and help you choose one that aligns with your personal preferences. Once treatment has begun, our team will be by your side to support your physical and spiritual well-being throughout the process.

Treatments may include:

• Chemotherapy
• Radiation
• Surgery

• Immunotherapy
• Clinical Trials
