Personalized medicine is the future of hematology and oncology care. Here at Compassionate Cancer Care we work with Tempus to conduct genomic sequencing on both the tumor and the patient's blood to identify genomic alterations that we can potentially target with new therapies.

With new drugs being developed at a rapid rate and new research being performed to understand the mechanisms driving various cancers, we are now able to tailor therapy to the individual patient. We are about to test the genetic makeup of each cancer and the somatic and germline mutations in each patient. With this information, we can now customize treatment to each patient’s needs and target each cancer uniquely. By creating a personalized treatment plan, we can help patients live longer as well as dramatically improving quality of life. As our field has advanced, we have learned that certain treatments worked better for some patients than for others. These genetic differences lead to different treatment responses and treating cancer is not a “one size fits all” approach. Our practice now offers:

● Genetic testing

● Targeted treatments

● Oncotyping in breast cancer

● Breast cancer subtyping

● Colon cancer subtyping, including microsatellite testing

● Immunotherapy 

● Somatic and germline mutation testing

● “Liquid biopsies” with the ability to check tumor genomics with a simple blood draw



At Compassionate Cancer Care, we understand that starting chemotherapy can be an overwhelming and a life changing decision.

In order to ease your transition into treatment, we offer chemotherapy classes and education to anyone who chooses to enroll in a class.  During our chemoeducation class we discuss with you one-on-one and in person the effects of any chemotherapy you will be receiving. This  includes but is not limited to: 


1. Drug information- we will provide the latest information about chemotherapy drugs including how they work, their potential side effects, and self-care tips while on these therapies


2. How to manage side effects- provide the latest information about potential side effects of chemotherapy


3. Nutrition- what foods to eat and avoid during treatment

4. Chemotherapy Basics- we provide one-on-one instruction to go over the basics of chemotherapy with you, a family member, or friend so you can know what to expect as you undertake your treatment.

5. Resources- we will also provide information on any resources that may be helpful such as the American Cancer Society or 

support groups. 

Oral cancer treatments are increasingly being used to treat cancer cells. As medicine continues to advance, there has a been a shift from intravenous chemotherapy to oral cancer treatments. Oral drugs include treatments by tablet, capsule, or liquid form which can kill cancer and halt its growth.  Oral treatments can be prescribed by your doctor, nurse practitioner, or physician's assistant, and has the same benefits and risks as chemotherapy. Patients now have many oral options for treatment that provides more convenience, more tailored, personalized treatments that target specific mutations in your cancer.


In the past, oral treatments were only available through specialty pharmacies through a third-party provider. Now we are pleased to offer in house oral oncolytic dispensing for added patient convenience. We will educate you on proper storage, handling, and disposal and best time to take the medication. In addition, we offer timely support for your symptoms and side effects. We also offer help with co-payment assistance, insurance coupons, and insurance authorizations. Please ask your provider if oral oncolytics is an option for your condition. 




 * In house dispensing availability dependent on insurance approval
