In-House Cancer Pharmacy Services for Maximum Effectiveness, Convenience and Safety
The appropriateness and effectiveness of your cancer treatment are essential to our mission, which is to help you beat cancer and get on with your life. For your chemotherapy treatments to be appropriate for you and effective, they must be the right compound, precisely prepared, correctly administered, and vigilantly followed. It’s also helpful if they are conveniently accessible and backed by credentials, expertise and first-rate service.
Making it convenient to get specialized cancer and chemotherapy medications.
Astera Cancer Care dispenses oral chemotherapy and supporting medications. These are medications that aren’t available from the typical corner pharmacy, and they require informed, experienced counseling when being dispensed to patients. Our pharmacists have a deep understanding of interactions with other substances, what to expect, what to watch for and more. They are here to answer questions, help you get what you need and make sure you have all the necessary information and assistance. In the event patients are in need of copay assistance, we provide services to secure funding by contacting copay and/or pharmaceutical company patient assistance programs.
