Top-quality cancer care… right here where you are.

At SMOC, we use the same guidelines, methods and protocols used by major cancer centers. Plus, we have a highly capable, informed and experienced team of cancer specialists, oncology nurses and support staff who combine exceptional training, knowledge and skill to give you every chance in the fight against cancer.

Because SMOC has three convenient locations in Goldsboro, Clinton, and Jacksonville, our leading-edge care is convenient to rural North Carolina. This is quite important under any circumstance, but particularly relevant when it comes to treatment for cancer.

At SMOC, you get the leading-edge capabilities, care coordination, trained professionals and support resources you’d expect to find at UNC or Duke. But because cancer treatment often requires multiple visits — frequently for weeks at a time — SMOC keeps you from having to make multiple long, logistically challenging trips… at a time that is already challenging enough.

Unsurpassed accessibility & convenience.

We’re committed to removing and reducing those challenges by making your care as accessible and convenient as possible. You get compassionate and individualized attention and support without the layers of process or the anonymity sometimes found in big cancer centers. Also, if you have problems that require you to be seen quickly, we’ll get you in that same day.

Here are some additional ways we make it easy for you to get the state-of-the-art care you need:

  • All patients welcome, regardless of insurance status
  • Open during lunch hours & on Fridays
  • Fast testing & results turnaround
  • Focused on eliminating delays in start of treatment

Also, here are some other ways we cater to your needs and demonstrate our commitment to accessibility, service and a patient experience that’s second to none:

  • Audio recordings – We are happy to record any doctor-patient visit. This makes it possible for you or your family members to review what was discussed, eliminate confusion and share details with family caregivers.
  • Email – We can provide an email address so that you can send us your questions or concerns when they come up.
  • We welcome your phone calls – Your call will be answered by a caring person, not an automated phone system. If you have questions, you’ll speak to your nurse, or you’ll receive a call back.

Expert, experienced treatment & cancer-care coordination.

Whatever your needs are in relation to the diagnosis, staging and treatment of cancer, we can help. Our cancer doctors will manage all aspects of your care, from testing to treatment to ensuring you get the support and assistance you need. We have in-house laboratory services, on-site social services, in-office genetic testing and counseling, a team of financial counselors, support groups, on-site pharmaceutical services, classes and much more.
