Levine Cancer Institute-Rutherford, located in Rutherford, NC, brings together a group of highly-trained oncologists and hematologists representing different backgrounds and experiences.
Every aspect of our practice reflects a personal touch and an individualized approach to cancer care, while providing advanced treatment.
The physicians of Levine Cancer Institute-Rutherford remain abreast of technological innovations and new proven therapies through our participation and leadership on several medical boards.
Full chemotherapy and laboratory services are delivered in a relaxing environment by highly trained and qualified staff.
Patients receive treatment in comfortable recliners, under a soft blanket fresh from the warmer if they wish. A family member or friend is welcome to be with the patient during treatment. The infusion areas are furnished with DVD players with a selection of DVDs, and refreshments are offered to the patients and their guests.
Because our practice is affiliated with Carolinas HealthCare System, our physicians participate in, or serve as principal investigators for, important clinical trials relating to most types of malignancies. They explore promising new agents that can be used alone or in combination with standard accepted therapies. The advantage to patients, of course, is that these new treatment protocols can potentially extend or improve the quality of their lives.
Our patients have access a variety of support programs, including a comprehensive wellness, exercise and nutrition program offered at area YMCAs, a cosmetologist-led class to help women adjust to the side effects of treatment, support groups and individual counseling. We also provide financial counseling for those who need some assistance.
