Medical Oncology

VCS Treatments

Medical Oncology is the treatment of cancer with medicine, such as chemotherapy, hormones, and analgesics.

Medical oncologists coordinate and direct a patient’s medical care.

Your medical oncologist will provide several of the following services:

  • Educate patients on their form of cancer and stage development
  • Explain patients’ treatment options, make recommendations, and work with patients to develop a customized treatment plan that is right for them
  • Monitor the care and treatments patients receive

Through its physicians and highly skilled oncology clinical staff, Virginia Cancer Specialists offers quality care for patients battling all types of cancers.

The VCS team works with patients to ensure they are receiving the best, individualized treatment plan possible. We closely monitor each patient’s progress and provide education for the various forms of cancer and the temporary side effects of chemotherapy.
