Cancer and Hematology Services Provided at SMOC
In order to offer the highest standard of care for cancer and blood-related diseases, Southeastern Medical Oncology Center’s physicians and staff combine compassion, dedication, experience, research, pain control and teamwork with comprehensive services and coordination of leading-edge care.
Our team of board-certified and highly experienced oncology/hematology physicians and specially trained oncology nurses is complemented by our in-house laboratory, pharmaceutical services, social services and counseling, to name just a few of our services.
There are many different ways to treat cancer. Medicines such as chemotherapy, immunotherapy, hormone therapy, and biological therapy can all be used to slow down or eliminate cancer cells. Surgery is used to remove cancer from the body, while radiation can be used to target cancer spots in harder to reach locations. At SMOC, your oncology will help you determine which treatment options are best for your particular cancer.
Comprehensive care and coordination for cancer and blood diseases.
All of us here at SMOC work with you, your family and other healthcare providers to ensure the highest-quality therapy, treatment and care. Here’s how we do it:
Patient & Family Counseling
SMOC’s clinical social worker helps patients and families cope with concerns and anxieties that arise during illness and treatment. A cancer or blood disease diagnosis has an impact on the entire family. A range of emotional issues can surface during stressful times, and every family is unique. We offer mental health services as part of our goal of providing comprehensive care. In individual, couple and group/family therapy sessions, we focus on patient education, psychosocial support and therapeutic intervention. Issues addressed include stress, anxiety, depression, anger management, adjustment, caregiving, empowerment, grief and loss.
Onsite Pharmaceutical Services
To accommodate all your individual cancer- and hematology-care needs, SMOC offers on-site pharmaceutical services at each of our convenient North Carolina locations. Also, for your maximum ease and convenience, SMOC’s pharmacies now stock over-the-counter (OTC) medications, as well.
