We know you have choices in cancer and hematology care. Thank you for choosing Nebraska Cancer Specialists.
There are two types of oncology practices that provide care in the outpatient setting: community oncology and hospital-based oncology.
The benefit of community oncology centers is that they have been found to provide efficient, patient-centered oncology care at lower costs to patients, health plans, and community physicians.
Your Medical Oncology Care Team at NCS has extensive knowledge of the varying signs and symptoms of cancer, as well as the different methods of treatment. Your team works closely with you and your family throughout your cancer care journey.
A physician who is confident in their treatment recommendation will normally welcome second opinions, and be open to the request.
Occasionally, an oncologist might suggest a second opinion from a fellow colleague with exceptional experience in treating a specific tumor. Whether a patient has come to NCS for primary treatment or a second opinion, our promise is to provide compassionate and comprehensive care. It is normal to have questions regarding diagnosis and treatment options. We will answer all questions asked and provide any information requested.
Nebraska Cancer Specialists serves our communities and surrounding areas in 11 full-service oncology/hematology clinics in Nebraska and Iowa.
