1. Compassionate, personal, individualized care

The caring professionals at American Cancer Center will get to know you. We will keep you informed. Your physical and emotional well-being matter to us and our coordination with your other treating physicians will be personal, frequent, and productive. You will experience the convenience of coming to a free-standing cancer treatment facility - with parking right in front. Your cancer treatment team will get you in and out quickly, so that treatments are not an added burden on your schedule.

2. A commitment to cutting-edge technology

American Cancer Center is equipped with the latest technology. For example, we feature "on-board" imaging, a key component in IGRT (Image Guided Radiation Therapy). With this, our oncology staff verifies the precise treatment area - every time, allowing us to use a higher intensity of radiation right where it is most needed. Many radiation oncology centers image patients for localization weekly; however, with IGRT, American Cancer Center can create a new CT image before every treatment while the patient is on the treatment table. This allows for accurate delivery of the radiation treatment to the cancer site while protecting critical normal structures for more effective radiation delivery.
