A Partnership Between Physicians and Their Community

Maryland Oncology Hematology believes in providing patients with advanced, comprehensive cancer therapies in a community setting that allows patients to receive care near their support systems. Our highly trained and experienced physicians work closely with a talented clinical team that is sensitive to the needs of cancer patients and their caregivers. Choosing an independent practice offers patients the chance to receive compassionate, affordable cancer care that utilizes the latest technologies provided by top physicians who are experts in their field. The best of care, close to home.

Patients can be assured that as an independent practice, MOH physicians are able to send patients to the best specialists or make recommendations based on specific care needs. We are never beholden to a practice or network. Unlike some of the major hospitals, our doctors are focused solely on oncology, giving patients the expert care that they deserve. At Maryland Oncology Hematology, we believe that patients are more than a number. Each patient will have a dedicated care team by their side from diagnosis through treatment to recovery.

Maryland Oncology Hematology is a community-based practice, entirely owned and run by Maryland physicians. Our team is devoted to providing state-of-the-art patient care for hematology and oncology, working on behalf of our community for the benefit of patients.

 I’m excited to be part of this highly respected community-based private practice,” said Jason Taksey MD., medical oncologist and managing partner for new Annapolis location. “Maryland Oncology Hematology delivers state-of-the-art care and remarkable treatments in an outpatient center that is safe, modern, convenient, and responsive to patient feedback.”

Choosing an Independent Cancer Provider

As an independent practice, Maryland Oncology Hematology is proud to offer patients increased access to integrated, evidence-based cancer care and clinical research throughout the communities of Maryland. When compared to oncology services at big hospitals, independent cancer centers are typically more conveniently located, more individualized, and more likely to offer all necessary services under one roof. Independent cancer centers are also more cost effective for patients.

At MOH, our state-of-the-art infusion centers offer a full range of chemotherapy services, laboratory testing, clinical trials, and support services, provided by people who have an unwavering commitment to achieving the best possible result.

Our providers also have the freedom to choose the best possible specialists and hospital services for our patients, as well as arranging referrals for additional consultation or specialty care when needed. We ensure that our patients receive the best care based on each person’s unique diagnosis and treatment needs.

Maryland Oncology Hematology is able to offer cutting edge and innovative clinical research trials without the delays that many hospitals face. In partnership with US Oncology Network, MOH is able to unite the practice with more than 1,380 independent physicians dedicated to delivering value-based, integrated care to patients. These independent doctors come together to form a community of shared expertise and resources dedicated to advancing local cancer care and to delivering better patient outcomes.

Benefits to Patients

At Maryland Oncology Hematology, we strive to help patients through positive patient-doctor relationships while utilizing the latest in advanced technology. Other benefits include:

Better Access and Convenience

Community facilities offer integrated care close to home meaning there is less travel for patients. This provides reduced ER visits, admissions, and overnight hospital stays because of the proximity to care. At community cancer care clinics, patients receive treatments from one care team. In the hospital setting, patients are likely to see a different doctor and nurse throughout treatment.

Personalized Medicine

Our team utilizes a multidisciplinary approach to cancer care, combined with the most advanced treatments, cutting-edge technologies, and clinical trials research program. This includes precision medicine based on the genetic profile of a patient or their specific diseases. Molecular testing can be used to help target cancer treatments, as well as improve accuracy of a diagnosis in complex cases or help patients learn if there is a risk of cancer that runs in their families.

Immediate Appointments

At Maryland Oncology Hematology, we offer immediate appointments to newly referred patients, ensuring they get the care they need without stressful and unnecessary delays they might otherwise experience in major hospital systems. Our team will schedule a consult with one of our experts who can provide guidance and treatment options, as well as address any patient and family member concerns.

Community care offers patients:

  • Shorter wait times
  • Easily accessible surface parking and patient drop-offs
  • Less likelihood of catching infection associated with hospital visits
  • Access to support services, including social workers, financial assistance, and reimbursement specialists
  • Access to groundbreaking clinical trials
  • Lower cost of care across all cancer types when compared to hospital settings[1]

“We’re grateful to have the privilege to bring remarkable cancer care advances to our patients, as well as offer therapies that can improve their quality of life,” said Dr. Jason Taksey. “At MOH Annapolis, we are excited to offer superior care options for our patients and our surrounding community.”
