Family Oriented Care

When a family member is diagnosed with cancer, the entire family is affected. This is especially true of children. Having a Pediatric Oncology Clinic in Bakersfield with be a significant step in alleviating some of the stress of travelling for treatment.

We have strong evidence that the team approach to treating cancer is the most effective. We extend this team concept to include parents and care-givers as important members of the patient's care team.

Parents and caregivers will be included in all the important decisions. Your understanding of the treatment is critical. Working as an integrated team, we will achieve the best possible outcome.
