Southwest Iowa Cancer and Blood Specialists
Illness is more than a disorder or disease. It affects everything you do - your work, recreation and family life. That's why at Heartland Oncology & Hematology we treat you as a person before we treat you as a patient..
A critical element of our care is the personal involvement of our staff. Patients aren't charts or numbers next in line, but people we care for who are facing a difficult time in their lives. We understand the roller coaster of emotions that often accompanies illness, and we are here to calm fears, ease worry and help make life with disease as positive and comfortable as possible.
At Heartland Oncology & Hematology, we will discuss the advantages and disadvantages of treatment options with you and involve you as part of the health care team and, as with all good teams, trust and open communication are our goals. Uncertainty can be frightening so we will answer your questions honestly and openly.
American author and teacher Helen Keller wrote, “Keep your face to the sunshine and you cannot see the shadow.” It is with that spirit of hope, dignity and determination that we, together with you, face the challenges before us each day.
