Community Hospital Anderson offers state-of-the-art cancer services to allow patients to receive the treatment they need, close to home. Each patient is treated by staff they quickly come to know and trust, with their personal physician involved in ongoing treatment. And, being the close team we are, we strongly encourage family and friends to be present and give support along the way.

He is well-respected in the medical community and, most importantly, by his patients.
Along with Dr. Naqvi, our team consists of certified oncology nurses, an on-site pharmacist, and the front office staff that will smile and get to know you at every appointment. All have a reputation for their quality of care, but also for the quality of their caring. From throwing a wedding reception for a young patient with Stage IV melanoma, to making blankets to provide warmth and comfort to all patients, the staff truly goes above and beyond. Continuing education is priority. Our staff stay up-to-date on the latest treatments and technologies with complete, intensive oncology training and American College of Surgeons Commission on Cancer program accreditation, as well as ongoing medical education focused on current topics in the oncology and psychology fields.
The Madison County Cancer Care Center provides treatment for all types of cancer and blood disorders in adults. Care is coordinated with your physicians to determine the best treatment methods, based on your personal needs and the type of cancer you have. If you require surgery, we'll be part of the process and provide the follow-up treatment and support you need.
Along with advanced medical oncology treatments, our comprehensive program includes therapies to help keep symptoms under control. Effective treatment means that we improve your overall quality of life and well-being. We offer several types of therapies, including medications and psychological support to control symptoms that often accompany cancer and its treatment. Common symptoms can include pain, fatigue, nausea, vomiting, depression, loss of appetite, anxiety and insomnia. Trained psychosocial professionals can meet with you and your family throughout the entire treatment process. And, we're always there to provide you and your loved ones with education, health care coordination and ongoing emotional support with a multidisciplinary team approach. Simply put, we'll be there every step of the way.
