    "One of the most exciting aspects in oncology is the ability to individualize and personalize the treatments we offer to our patients. Being able to figure out the weaknesses in the DNA of a tumor and then come up with a unique and effective treatment plan for that individual person is amazing," shares Dr. Latif. It’s rewarding to see these new and innovative treatments work as they allow our patients to get back to what they should be doing-living and enjoying their lives!"

    "The most rewarding aspect of my job is getting to know patients and having an opportunity to be involved in their care in a setting that is in their own community, shares Dr. Bishop. "One of the things that attracted me to Sturdy is the family-like atmosphere here, and the familiarity we're able to develop with our patients. Good oncology and hematology care depends on a whole-patient approach, we try never to lose sight of this in our practice."

    What Patients Are Saying

    You never think it will happen to you. Hearing those words “you have cancer,” changed my life and my family’s life forever. Throughout this journey I have never once questioned whether or not my decision to get my treatment at Sturdy was the right one, I know it was.

    Sarah- North Attleboro

    “I never considered treatment elsewhere. I trusted Sturdy
    and never once doubted the care I was receiving. They have a deep
    understanding of how personal a battle with cancer is and care for
    you as a whole person, not just a diagnosis.”
