Cancer affects far more than the body; the emotional well being of a patient must be considered as well. An otherwise perfectly healthy, well-adjusted individual is suddenly forced to face his or her own mortality. When one is diagnosed with cancer, they commonly experience anxiety and stress. Side effects from drugs used to treat the cancer may also create problems ranging from insomnia to sexual dysfunction. In addition to the patient’s needs, we consider the needs of family members, caregivers and co-workers. To learn more about what we offer, please click here.
