Patient Centered Care
The diagnosis of cancer or a blood disease is emotionally charged and physically challenging. It helps to have the support of specialists who truly care; who have the expertise to work with you to choose your best treatment option; the experience to prepare you for what lies ahead; and the compassion to hold your hand through it all.
Communication - We Listen
There is no greater comfort than the simple act of listening. Open communication is the key to effective listening and empowers you to be actively involved in your treatment. From the moment you walk through our doors, the lines of communication flow freely between you, your referring physician and your team of specialists.
Parkland’s oncologists are board certified cancer specialists from the Sophia Gordon Cancer Center at the Lahey Clinic in Burlington, Massachusetts.
Our clinical team is comprised of nationally-certified oncology nurses, a clinical trials nurse, social worker, laboratory technician and an onsite pharmacist and technician. Certification in oncology nursing demonstrates that a nurse has specialized knowledge and experience in cancer care. They are dedicated caregivers providing you with patient centered care each and every visit.
Clinical Trials Nurse
The clinical trials nurse is also a research professional who is involved in the management of clinical trials as an administrator, coordinator, consultant, educator or researcher. This individual plays a critical part in the planning, establishment and provision of clinical trials available at Parkland.
