Medical Oncology

Central Vermont Oncology at Mountainview Medical, a member of CVMC’s Medical Group Practices, has been providing oncology and hematology services for patients of central Vermont for many years.

Our medical oncologists, hematologist and oncology advanced practice nurse, along with other dedicated staff, provide all aspects of medical oncology care and outpatient infusion services for adults with cancer and blood-related diseases. Infusion services include chemotherapy, as well as additional medications and treatments.

Coordination of Care

Cancer treatment is influenced by many factors, including the specific characteristics of your disease; your overall health; and whether the goal of treatment is to cure your disease, keep it from spreading, or to relieve symptoms. Depending on these factors, your treatment will often require some combination of surgery, chemotherapy, and radiation therapy. It is very common to use several treatments in combination or in sequence with the goal of preventing recurrence.

Our staff works closely with CVMC’s surgeons and radiation oncologists to ensure that you receive the most appropriate and comprehensive treatment plan for your cancer.

Getting a Second Opinion

Mountainview Medical considers getting a second opinion to be a very important part of a patient’s education about their particular type of cancer and available treatment options—it will not offend us and should not make you feel uncomfortable! We encourage you to learn as much as possible about your diagnosis and treatment options. This helps you and your family make informed decisions and feel assured the treatment you choose is the most appropriate for you. Our office staff will set up the appointment and assist you in gathering your medical records, radiology and pathology information. We will also provide a medical referral if required by your insurance company.

Upcoming Events

No one wants to have cancer, but the care I have received from Dr. Valentine and his staff have made a difficult situation much easier to deal with. He and his "nurses and office staff are the best!

Everyone treats me with such special care as if I was the only patient. Dr. Ospina I'm sure is keeping me going. I'm so glad he is there.
