We have a courteous, professional staff that is happily waiting to serve you with all your needs...from start to finish! Specialized care ensures that you are being treated by the most qualified individuals. Our doctors and nurses are trained in the various fields of cancer and then sub-specialized in the type of cancer they treat. Depending on the diagnosis, a team of different oncology specialists will take care of all your needs. It’s not one doctor that treats everything, rather it is a team think tank designed to give you the latest protocols and advancements in treatment. At KHCC we recognize that cancer treatment isn’t just about taking medications and making it on time to appointments. Cancer is a very emotional disease that can take its toll on patients and their families. For these reasons, KHCC has on-staff fulltime teams of ancillary service providers that offer physical and social therapies to help patients deal with their developing disease and enhance quality of life during and post care. We also provide psycho-social care, because we recognize that sometimes you need more that just a doctor or nurse to talk to about your treatment. When patients come to us at KHCC, we understand their anxiety and trepidations, that’s why we make sure to do the best we can to meet all their requests and demands. In order to meet patient needs and ensure smooth diagnosis and staging, it is essential that all diagnostic tools are available to the treating oncologists. No time is wasted as a patient’s care and treatment is started immediately. Whether a patient needs chemotherapy, radiotherapy, surgery or a combination of different modalities, we make sure that all services are available at just the right time. For most diseases, multidisciplinary clinics work together to deliver care. Patients are discussed in detail, even when they don’t have actual appointments. We believe it is not enough for people to exchange medical reports and notes, but rather our philosophy entails seeing people sitting at the same table and talking about the same patient. This comprehensive approach guarantees the well rounded decision making to reach the best possible outcomes.
The following elements make our service unique:
1. A multidisciplinary team of experts
2. Up-to-date cutting edge treatments
