At QMA, the dispensing staff is a very important part of the treatment team. We maintain our own state-of-the-art oncology dispensary on-site. Licensed pharmacists specialize in the mixture of chemotherapy drugs and dispensing of oral medications. Our pharmacists are always available to consult with patients, staff, and physicians to provide the latest information about drugs and combinations of drugs and to manage the side effects of treatment. Having a direct, clear line of communication assures the best possible treatment and minimizes opportunity for error.
To assure that all patients receive exactly what is needed, on the day of treatment all infusions and injectable treatments are custom prepared. Upon your physician’s orders, specially trained licensed pharmacists prepare the medications immediately prior to treatment.
The dispensary is a great convenience for patients. Prescriptions can be picked up before you leave, avoiding wait time and you may obtain professional advice directly from our highly trained pharmacists.
