Onsite Infusion Services
When a patient requires chemotherapy, we provide treatment right on site in one of our three state-of-the-art infusion centers in Wethersfield, Enfield, and New Britain. Our outpatient facilities provide a warm and caring environment for patients to receive intravenous therapies and injections under the supervision of our highly trained staff. We are one of the only healthcare practices to offer independently run, self-standing infusion centers in Connecticut. We place extraordinary emphasis on safety, experience, convenience, and comfort.

Hereditary Risk Assessment Program
This program helps patients determine their risk of developing cancer, especially if they or someone in their family has been previously diagnosed. Our Advanced Practice Providers are specifically trained to help people understand genetic conditions, assess risk factors, and support decisions about testing and treatment.
