Florida Cancer Specialists & Research Institute

Supporting patients and families through every step of their cancer journey

Despite rapid advancements, cancer treatment can be complex and span months and years. That’s why it’s so important for patients to have access to the comprehensive care they need close to home and close to loved ones, without the need to drive long distances or travel out of state. 

At Florida Cancer Specialists & Research Institute, every interaction is expertly and precisely focused on each patient’s experience and well-being to minimize disruption to their daily lives and enable them to achieve the best possible outcome. 

Providing the most advanced treatments, close to home   

From genetic screening to immunotherapies and access to the latest clinical trials, Florida Cancer Specialists & Research Institute’s top-ranked cancer experts provide the most advanced treatments in our local community.   

Florida Cancer Specialists & Research Institute physicians and patients are part of leading-edge cancer innovations and discoveries through participation in clinical trials. In fact, the majority of new cancer drugs approved for use in the U.S. in recent years were studied in clinical trials with Florida Cancer Specialists & Research Institute participation, prior to approval. No other community-based oncology practice in Florida matches the clinical trial opportunities we make available to patients close to home. 

Embracing innovation to deliver personalized, precision medicine

Through continuous strategic investments in the highest-quality and most advanced technologies, Florida Cancer Specialists & Research Institute is able to deliver truly personalized medicine to our patients, increasing cure rates and extending lives.  

With easy access to cutting-edge clinical Next Generation genomic testing that rapidly detects mutations in hundreds of different genes simultaneously, physicians are able to personalize treatments based on each patient’s unique genetic makeup.
