Arizona Oncology, one of the largest cancer centers in the state with more than 70 physicians, has opened its newest location at 8415 N. Pima Road, suite 165, Scottsdale.
The practice, joining Arizona Oncology’s 14 other statewide locations, includes 14 treatment chairs in a relaxing environment to treat patients with all types of cancer in a community setting, according to a press release.
The new, comprehensive cancer center provides state-of-the-art services in diagnostic imaging, genomic testing, genetic testing, chemotherapy, surgery and clinical trials. As a unique element, patients will have the opportunity to have a biopsy performed same day to eliminate the stressful process of waiting for an appointment while facing a cancer diagnosis.
“We know that a possible cancer diagnosis can be an anxiety-inducing experience, but Arizona Oncology considers it a privilege to face the cancer battle head-on with our patients,” said Donna Rains, Scottsdale practice administrator. “By conducting a biopsy on the same day of a patient’s appointment, we reduce wait times and speed up a diagnosis, which allows our providers to treat the cancer sooner, leading to better overall outcomes.”
The new Scottsdale location is equipped with best-in-care services, including medical oncology, hematology, breast surgery, on-site infusion, bone marrow biopsy, genetic counseling and nutritional support. The practice is staffed with dedicated and highly trained physicians and medical teams who treat all types of cancer, including breast, lung, skin, pancreas, thyroid, liver and more.
Arizona Oncology offers an integrated, team-oriented approach to provide care for all types of cancer and works with patients to determine an individualized treatment plan for the best possible outcomes, the press release stated.
Physician specialists at the Scottsdale location include Dr. Edgar D. Staren, statewide director of breast surgery services and surgical oncologist, and medical oncologists and hematologists Dr. Christopher Di Simone, Dr. Paul O’Neill, Dr. Sharon Ondreyco and Dr. Joseph Volk.
Arizona Oncology patients are additionally supported by a welcoming staff of certified nutritionists, lab specialists, pharmacists and other healthcare professionals that work together to create a seamless patient experience.
The Scottsdale office joins Arizona Oncology’s other statewide locations in Glendale, Goodyear, Green Valley, Phoenix, Prescott, Prescott Valley, Scottsdale and Tucson.
