New Integrated Cancer Care Network: The Center for Cancer Care, a service of Gwinnett Medical Center

02.19.2013

Patients in the region now have a convenient option when it comes to cancer care. Recently the infusion centers of Suburban Hematology Oncology Associates P.C., located in Lawrenceville, Duluth and Snellville, became the Center for Cancer Care, a service of Gwinnett Medical Center (GMC).  

The newly formed Center for Cancer Care results from a strengthened relationship between GMC and the physicians of Suburban Hematology Oncology Associates P.C. Practicing physicians include Allan Freedman, MD, Christopher Hagenstad, MD, Anthony M. Landis, DO, Aldemar Montero MD, Kevin H. Peacock, MD, Alexander Saker, Jr., MD, P. Ravi Sarma, MD and Satvir Singh, MD.

“An estimated 40,000 people in the Gwinnett area are currently living with cancer,” said GMC Executive Vice President and COO Thomas Shepherd. “This new venture will build on the great network of care we already have, and will aid in helping cancer patients in our region obtain the care they need, closer to home.” 

“The venture allows us to build on our individual strengths and together set new goals for continuing to improve our services for patients and families living with cancer into the future,” said (a Suburban Hematology doctor). “Over time we hope this takes the form of a more seamless system of care and also additional access to services that are needed in our region,” said Anthony M. Landis, DO.

Patients can expect the same experienced physicians and staff of Suburban Hematology Oncology Associates P.C., as well as the same infusion/injection services, including chemotherapy, hydration and other IV therapies.

The Center for Cancer Care, a service of Gwinnett Medical Center, has offices in Lawrenceville, Duluth and Snellville.
