hematology and medical oncology specialty at UC Davis

Our team of medical oncologists work closely with doctors from other cancer specialties to provide a full range of treatments and expertise.

At UC Davis Comprehensive Cancer Center, we offer one of the largest, most comprehensive cancer diagnosis and treatment programs on the West Coast.  Our highly skilled, compassionate medical oncologists work closely with their colleagues in our different clinical specialties to provide each patient with an accurate diagnosis and state-of-the-art, individualized treatment.

Through our clinical trials program, one of the leading programs of its kind nationally, our medical oncologists offer patients access to the latest cancer therapies before they become widely available.

Our medical oncologists also collaborate with physicians and other health professionals in related specialties to ensure that cancer patients and their families have access to complete care for their physical, psychological, emotional and spiritual needs.
