Welcome from the Medical Director

Laura Stampleman, MDWelcome,

Whether you are here to learn more about cancer, the diagnostic process, or treatment options, our commitment is to help you lessen or eliminate cancer as a risk in your life. The good news is we know we can prevent many kinds of cancers. Don't smoke; eat better food; loose weight; exercise. Additionally, much is known about the specific types of cancers men and women get most frequently and the risks associated with those cancers.

Our Comprehensive Community Cancer Program has been accredited by the American College of Surgeons for more than twenty years. Because of our highly skilled oncologists, radiologists, surgeons, nurses and other dedicated health care professionals, our state-of-the-art equipment, and access to advanced clinical trials; we have earned the privilege of calling ourselves a Cancer Program.

Since 1985 we have maintained a Cancer Registry that plays a vital role in establishing and maintaining standards set by the American College of Surgeons. We collect, analyze, and report information on all cancer patients diagnosed and/or treated here. To date, our Cancer Registry maintains a total of more than 10,220 cases in the database and more than 8,645 are actively followed.

Here at the Comprehensive Community Cancer Program we are committed to having the best people at all aspects of cancer care and dedicated to having a very strong support program to meet the emotional needs of our cancer patients.

We know that in some cases a visit to this page is the first step of a long and frightening journey. Rest assured, we have been down this road before and we are willing to go there with you.

Dr. Laura Stampleman
