Interest in Helping Others

The field of cancer is very exciting In terms of new developments and treatments. The biology, the science and genes are all important aspects. This interest as well as genuinely wanting to help others beat this disease made me decide to go into oncology.

More than just a Patient

Patient-Doctor interaction is very important, and giving quality care to those in need is very rewarding. The patients need access, expertise, compassion and to know that the people treating them really do care. We really want to help you get better and make this experience as comfortable as possible.

Wide Range of Treatment Options

We are the first practice in nine years that was asked to join the Cancer Center Alliance at Washington University in St. Louis, Missouri. This allows us to bring clinical trials to our patients, and gives them more opportunities to participate. Clinical trials are a very important part of advancing the science of cancer management.

    Excellent care by Dr Smith


    No significant wait timely and responsive service


    Good experience


    Very good care


  • The reason we waited 30 minutes for Dr Smith to come in is because he was waiting for results of blood work that I'd had done earlier that morning


    Dr Smith is the best .very empathetic and caring ,does a good job of explaining what's going on.


  • Ive always been greeted by smiling faces in the oncology dept. That is always good, especially in this dept


    I enjoy visits w/ Dr Smith. He's easy to carry on a conversation, & is upbeat, & makes my appt easy for me.


    In all was there app 45 minutes before actually seeing the Dr. This is normal for any Dr visits anywhere else I go. I expect wait times in ANY Dr office


    Dr Smith was recommended to me, & I have gladly recommended him to other people


  • Arrived early and was seen early


  • The staff at this clinic are always very friendly and caring.


    Very pleased with how doctor takes time to explain things to you. He treats you as an individual and is very caring. He has a way of putting you at ease. Would highly recommend this physician.
