Gift Of HopeOur Approach

The gift of hope

Exciting advances in cancer care are always big new events. Thanks to these advances in technology and healthcare, cures are being discovered, survival rates are improving and side effects of treatments are dramatically decreasing, improving a patient’s quality of life. Our team is proud to bring those advances to our patients throughout Los Angeles and the entire San Fernando Valley, where you can be close to home with the support of family, friends and community.

While patients and referring physicians find it reassuring to have such credentialed, experienced physicians and support staff on their side, if you were to ask them what they appreciate most, they would probably say it was the people themselves. Our caring, compassionate team never forgets that behind every chart is a person who needs words of encouragement as much as they need innovative care. In short, we treat every patient as if they were a member of our own family.

Our goal is to help you find answers, give you hope and determine the best treatment options for you and your loved ones.

Surrounded by a team of cancer care experts

We’ve assembled a highly skilled team to take care of you. We are grateful that you trust us. We promise to treat you like we would want one of our beloved family members – our patients describe our cancer center as “like being home.”

You and your loved ones will probably have lots of questions when you’re first diagnosed. Keep a list of your questions and bring them to your appointments. Our knowledgeable staff will take the time to make sure you understand your diagnosis and treatment plan.

Keeping you informed

There are a lot of unknowns that come with a cancer diagnosis so we do our best to give you as much information as we can to help put your mind at ease. Whether you’re the person diagnosed with cancer, family member or loved one, the way you approach this life-changing event will be a reflection of how you approach life. Some people like to dig into the science to understand what cancer is and what the treatment options are from a technical standpoint. You might want to know statistics about the prognosis, the potential side effects or alternative therapies. Others may focus on the emotional and spiritual aspects of the journey. Regardless of your “style,” it’s important to educate yourself using reliable sources.

The American Cancer Society and The National Cancer Institute are helpful, trustworthy websites full of educational materials which cover all types of cancer, well-being for cancer patients, coping for family members, survivorship and more.
