My first appointment with the BMC Medical team was wonderful. I arrived with fear, without hope, but Dr. Michael Cassidy and Dr. Naomi Ko were empathetic, answered all my questions, made me feel safe and knew that I would overcome this disease.

Cancer Center Support

A diagnosis of cancer can be a life-altering experience for you and your loved ones. The Cancer Care Center supports patients during all aspects of their care – from diagnosis through treatment and recovery. The Center is dedicated to providing you with a comprehensive set of services that address a wide range of needs.


BMC researchers are finding innovative new ways to treat and cure cancers, including cancers of the breast, lung, colon, prostate, head and neck, blood cells (leukemia and lymphoma), and more.

As our patient, you'll have access to a wide range of clinical trials from both BMC researchers and researchers at other institutions.  While we enroll any and all eligible patients in clinical trials, BMC physicians are in particular leaders in the enrollment of under-represented minorities in clinical trials.
