Hematology and Oncology Associates was established in 1971 and specializes in Hematology and Medical Oncology. Our mission is to provide quality care to our patients in conjunction with the best technologies and medicines available to us.
Our practice of ten physicians, five physician assistants, an oncology certified nursing staff, lab technicians, and support team provides care at our two locations. Our primary facility is located in Dunmore, Pennsylvania with a fully certified laboratory, chemotherapy infusion wing, and clinical research department. The physicians also see patients in our satellite office located on the Morgan Highway in Scranton, Pennsylvania.
We continually strive to achieve the very best treatment for your individual needs while providing compassionate care in the most comfortable environment possible. Our physicians are actively involved with Clinical Research Trials and consider all patients for these trials. Clinical Trials or Protocols are scientific studies that allow physicians to find new or better methods of treating cancer patients. The Clinical Trials test many new drugs, approaches to different therapies, and surgeries in order to gain more knowledge on side effects and what treatments work best; this puts them in a position to offer our patients the most up-to-date treatments available.
Hematology and Oncology Associates participates in various Clinical Trials and has received awards and commendations for the number of patients it has enrolled. Our physicians are research oriented and remain dedicated to investigating new treatment modalities for care of the cancer patient. They attend various conferences throughout the year to stay current with new drugs, procedures, and therapies in an effort to continuously provide up-to-date services and care to our patients; By doing so, our physicians are able to offer the benefit of local care to those who might otherwise have to travel great distances from their home community in order to take advantage of the newest treatment options available. Our doctors enroll about 50 patients in Clinical Trials each year. The trials are sponsored by various pharmaceutical companies and cooperative groups such as the Eastern Cooperative Oncology Group (ECOG) and the National Surgical Adjuvant Breast and Bowel Project Cooperative Group (NSABP). Staff in the Research Department consists of oncology certified nurses, and a clinical research team that are all dedicated to aiding the physicians in the treatment and patient care issues of our Clinical Trial participants.
Hematology and Oncology Associates prides itself with knowing that our patients and their families come first. Our staff is dedicated to making sure our patients are provided with the absolute best care we can provide.
