Medical Oncology Services
The oncologist at Personalized Hematology-Oncology provides comprehensive consultation and treatment for all types of cancer throughout the greater Raleigh area. Our specialty tends towards innovative genome treatments and late-stage cancer treatment options. Our expertise includes chemotherapy, molecular targeted therapies and infusion administration while managing the patient’s doses, side effects and response to therapy.
We realized that most cancer treatment centers are cold and clinical, and patients are processed in and out in an impersonal way. At Personalized Hematology-Oncology, we designed our practice and our facility to be different from large hospitals and oncology centers. Undergoing cancer treatment is an emotionally and physically draining process. With our comfortable recliners, lots of natural light and other amenities, our patients are able to relax during their treatment. We see every day the difference it makes for patients to receive treatment in a warm and caring environment.
Our Specialty Service: Molecular Expression Profiling
We are experts in tumor gene expression profiling to determine how genes affect the way each cancer patient responds to drugs. With this crucial insight, our Raleigh physicians are better able to plan true customized cancer care with the potential for offering the right drug, at the right time, to the right patient.
Treating Cancer With Genome Science
A gene expression profile analysis allows you and your oncologist to have the “blueprint” of your tumor and determine which drugs have the capacity to prevent tumor growth. Some gene expression profiles may indicate that a drug will be particularly effective, others may indicate your tumor is resistant to certain treatments, or your tumor may be found to have no treatment currently available.
This science gives you important information to make decisions about cancer treatment, participation in clinical trials, or not pursuing further therapy.
