Northwest Medical Specialties is dedicated to providing compassionate, high quality and cost-effective medical services for hematology and oncology patents who reside in Pierce, Kitsap and King Counties. The basic operating assumption of the physicians of NWMS is that the patient’s physician is the most appropriate person to manage and balance all facets of patient care, including both clinical and business decisions. Whenever possible NWMS is committed to providing services outside the confines of the hospital setting when outpatient care is deemed appropriated for the patient’s condition and is consistent with the needs and desires of the patient and family.

NWMS acknowledges that their reputation of providing superior care to patients is only made possible by the dedicated efforts of its entire staff. Consequently, NWMS is committed to providing a work environment that recognizes the unique contributions of its staff and fully supports the professional development of all its team members.

HEALTH ALERT! For the safety of our patients and staff only patients will be allowed into our clinics and everyone MUST wear a mask. See additional information regarding the Coronavirus (COVID-19).


November 16, 2020 Update

During these difficult times we are making every effort to keep our patients and staff safe from COVID 19, we appreciate your patience and understanding with the changes you may have seen within our practice.

We strive to protect our patients and staff as much as we possibly can from any exposure on our premises.  NWMS has implemented a system wide policy that does not allow anyone in the building that is not a patient and everyone must wear an NWMS provided mask over their mouth and nose during their time on our premises.  This is to protect our vulnerable patients from the unforeseen possibility of exposure to COVID 19 which can be transmitted through aerosol droplets.  Sadly, we have had patients that have died from the complications of COVID 19, which is both devastating and preventable.

We offer a virtual visit option for family, friends, and companions to participate in the care of our patients through Zoom.  Our staff will assist you with every step of the login process and invite you to participate in real time from your vehicle or designated safe space in our building. Please contact us at 253-428-8700 to set this up.

The following offices are temporarily closed:

  • Bonney Lake
  • Federal Way

If you are experiencing cold or flu symptoms, please make sure to contact us via phone prior to your appointment. You may also contact us for any additional questions by calling our office at (253) 428-8700.
