Integrative Cancer Care

The oncology team at the Osher Center includes two oncologists, an integrative medicine physician, and a nurse practitioner, all of whom specialize in integrative oncology.

Our practitioners are trained in both conventional and complementary medicine. Patients receive a professionally guided and personally oriented set of recommendations that combines a range of therapies, providing a holistic approach and an integrated treatment plan.

In addition to our clinical services, we have free classes for people with cancer and their caregivers and an online “Cancer and Nutrition” guide.
