On-Site Chemotherapy for a More Comfortable Patient Experience
Chemotherapy is a widely used treatment for many types of cancer. At Essex Oncology, we have a spacious and comfortable chemotherapy infusion suite at each of our offices. This allows you to have your treatments without the additional time and effort required to travel to a hospital or other treatment center.
Our dedicated staff will get to know you and ensure that you are as comfortable as possible during your time with us. We will monitor you closely and educate you on nutrition and how you can prevent and/or manage side effects. Our team will treat you like family, and you are always welcome to bring a friend or family member with you during your treatments. Together, we’ll work to ensure that your experience is positive and successful.
Chemotherapy is a type of cancer treatment that uses drugs to stop or slow the growth of cancer cells. Depending on your type of cancer and how advanced it is, chemotherapy can be used to either cure cancer or control cancer. It can also be used to help relieve cancer symptoms.
Chemotherapy may be used as the only cancer treatment, but often patients receive chemotherapy along with surgery, radiation therapy, or biological therapy. The length and frequency of chemotherapy treatment will depend on your type of cancer and how advanced it is, your treatment goals, the type of medication used, and how your body reacts to the medication.
