Our highly skilled and experienced nurses hold Oncology Nursing Certification (OCN) or are currently working towards certification. The compassion, humor and professional expertise they infuse throughout our practice form the core of our personalized patient care. They are the reason why so many patients tell us “this is a happy place,” despite trying circumstances.
Clinical Research Staff
Certified Clinical Research Coordinators oversee our Clinical Research activities assuring rigid compliance with FDA and other regulatory agencies’ standards regarding patient eligibility and safety as well as required data collection and reporting.

Other Professional Staff
Medical assistants, scheduling and billing specialists assure that each patient receives individual support during every visit.
You should know that our oncologists present each new patient’s case at San Juan Regional Medical Center’s weekly conference called “Tumor Board”. Here, the patient’s diagnosis and proposed treatment plan are discussed with a multidisciplinary team of physicians. This interplay of surgeons, pathologists, radiation oncologists, our Cancer Navigator, social worker, and other specialists bring a broad spectrum of expertise and creativity to the plan of care for each patient, providing an extra measure of careful review and quality assurance.
