Hematology and Oncology Specialists of Cape Cod

Guidance for the Journey

Welcome to Hematology Oncology Specialists of Cape Cod, where our mission is to ensure that each patient's experience is one of superior care delivered in a warm, supportive, and uplifting environment.

We educate our patients about their disease and treatment options. We respect and remember that each patient is unique and that each will have an individual journey. Our goal is to accompany and guide that journey to the best of our ability with expertise and compassion.

Hooray for us!

HOSCC will be welcoming another physician to the team in the New Year!  Dr. John J. Gullo will begin seeing patients January 2015!

HOSCC has again received QOPI certification from the American Society of Clinical Oncology.

This status demonstrates a commitment to excellence and quality improvement in cancer care delivery.

HOSCC staff

Our doctors are board certified and have been practicing Hematology/Oncology medicine for over a decade.  They treat patients with all types of cancer diagnoses.  They also see patients with a variety of hematologic disorders including anemia and iron deficiency.  We routinely work with our colleagues at MGH, Dana-Farber, and other centers.

HOSCC physicians moderate the weekly multidisciplinary Tumor Board at Falmouth Hospital, and chair the Cancer Committee, a hospital board that promotes community outreach, education, and access to services.

Our staff consists of receptionists, medical assistants, a billing department, and registered nurses trained in giving chemotherapy.  All staff, both clinical and clerical, work together to provide a professional and personal caring experience for each patient.

On-Site Lab

The on-site laboratory provides complete blood count results immediately.  Up-to-the-minute laboratory data allow our doctors and nurses to make the safest and most effective treatment decisions for each patient.  As another convenience and service to our patients, we can also do blood draws from ports or peripherally to send specimens to outside laboratories.

The Infusion Room

HOSCC Treatment Room

This is where lab draws, port flushes, injections, and infusions take place. Chemotherapy as well as other medications and intravenous fluids are delivered here.  Our infusion room is bright and spacious.  Patients receive their treatments in comfortable recliners.  There is a separate room with stretcher bed for those who need it.  Patients and their companions can enjoy a movie, wireless internet, a card game, or a book from our library as well as coffee, tea, and snacks.

Nurses

HOSCC Nursing Staff
Your care in the Infusion Suite is delivered by a team of experienced and compassionate Registered Nurses.  They are with you each step of the process from lab draws to educating you and your caregivers about your diagnosis as well as your treatment plan.

The niceties that enhance our patient's experiences are provided by the Circle of Friends Fund.  The Fund was created by a patient’s husband who wanted to establish a tangible and ongoing representation of the support and nurturing they found at HOSCC. 

The Fund’s purpose is to help our patients feel cared for and supported by a community of friends who provide the “little extras” that can be so comforting.  Gifts to the Circle of Friends Fund are always appreciated.  For more information on Circle of Friends or to give a gift to the Circle of Friends please call our office or ask for information at your next visit.
