      Why Does Experience Matter?

      Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.

      Dr. Hager's Care Philosophy

      At cCARE, we believe that cancer treatment is more than just medicine. It's about compassion, prevention, research and wellness. Even though cancer treatment requires medical intervention, it's our belief that a strong will and a solid support group play a vital role in the healing process. That's why our expert team of board-certified oncologists, hematologists, nurses and other highly-skilled cancer care professionals all work together closely with our patients and their loved ones throughout the course of recovery. It's this compassionate approach, combined with our state-of-the-art facilities, comfortable environment, and commitment to implementing the most advanced treatment techniques available that help make us Central California's premier oncology center.
