Experienced Oncologists in Monterey County
In recent years, the cancer death rate has been on the decline thanks to
fervent research and remarkable medical advances. At the Salinas Valley
Medical Clinic (SVMC) cancer care center, we vigilantly observe new developments
in this field so that we can provide you with optimal cancer treatments.
SVMC has recently merged with Pacific Cancer Care, a leading provider
in oncology and hematology services for over 40 years. With our combined
resources, our organizations can better serve all cancer patients of the
Central Coast and surrounding areas.
The study and treatment of cancer is primarily handled in the following fields:

cancer affecting blood cells is often important, but hematologists rarely
perform oncological services.
