If you or a loved one has recently been diagnosed with cancer, it’s only natural to have a lot of questions: will you need chemotherapy? Will you lose your hair? Will you be able to keep working? And, most important of all, are you doing everything you can to get the best treatment possible?
In the Quad Cities, you don’t have to leave town to find the same level of cancer care that you’d expect at nationally ranked hospitals. At Iowa Cancer Specialists, we offer the same treatments that you’d receive at the Mayo Clinic, University of Iowa, or Cancer Treatment Centers of America. (In fact, our doctors are physician educators who lecture at those same clinics about new treatments, new uses for established drugs, and other innovations in cancer care.)
What you won’t find are long walks between the parking garage and the clinic, long wait times for labs or doctor’s visits, or lengthy travel when you aren’t feeling your best. Our goal is to provide you with the best care possible, with minimal disruption to your daily life.
Because most cancer treatments can negatively affect your body’s blood supply, there is significant overlap the way doctors treat cancer and the way we treat other blood disorders, including abnormal blood counts, hemophilia, and anemia related to kidney disease.
