Chemotherapy and Infusion Services
If you have a cancer diagnosis and have been prescribed chemotherapy, we can help.
We offer chemotherapy so that you can treat your cancer close to where you live, work, or vacation.
Chemotherapy uses powerful medications to kill cancer cells. Chemotherapy can be prescribed in many forms, but it is often given by infusion, which means it is delivered directly into a vein through a tube in your arm or a catheter in your chest.
You may also be prescribed additional infusions that aid your body in fighting cancer, such as pain medications and antibiotics, which we can also deliver in our clinics.
Our knowledgeable staff will help you with all aspects of your chemotherapy, working closely with your oncologist on your treatment and with you and your family on preparation for visits and management of side effects
We are proud to be able to help you through this journey. For more information, call us at (518) 873-6377.
