Improving lives through Hematology & Oncology at North Oaks

The North Oaks Hematology & Oncology team diagnoses and treats cancers and blood disorders while striving to provide the best possible experience to patients and their families throughout their cancer care journey.

Hematology-Oncology refers to the combined medical practice of oncology (the study of cancer) and hematology (the study of the blood's physiology).

Oncologists specialize in the diagnosis and treatment of cancer to provide expert, personalized care which involves:

  • Confirming a patient's initial diagnosis
  • Explaining the diagnosis
  • Providing all possible treatment plans
  • Overseeing the course of treatment
  • Helping patients manage symptoms and side effects of both the disease and the treatment plan

Hematology refers to the study of blood and blood disorders. Hematologists are trained in direct patient care dealing with the diagnosis and treatment management of blood and bone marrow cancers.


  • There are no two cancers or blood disorders that are the same. Each disease variation offers warning signs that it might be time to consult a hematology-oncology specialist.
