Cancer Treatment Services in Tacoma

We believe in treating patients like family.

Northwest Medical Specialties provides South Sound residents with compassionate, experienced and innovative medical care and treatment in oncology and hematology.

At NWMS we have the reputation of treating our patients like family. We are dedicated to providing excellent patient care by incorporating individual patient needs into compassionate, high-quality and cost-effective medical treatment. Services are provided outside the confines of the hospital setting whenever possible, allowing patients to experience their treatment in a warm and relaxing environment. We are also committed to advancing medical treatment through research and are among the regional leaders in clinical trials.

To help assist in the healing process, we understand that achieving and maintaining health requires more than just medications and medical treatments. Our physicians work closely with health care providers to coordinate patient care. Patients can research their diagnosis by visiting our Resources and Links section. We also sponsor classes in exercise and nutrition and offer support groups for patients and their families. Financial counseling services are also available.
