Care Philosophy

"Pontchartrain Cancer Center is a private medical practice specializing in the treatment and prevention of cancer and blood disorders. Medical Oncology is the field of medicine which specializes in the diagnosis and treatment of cancer. Cancer is treated in numerous ways: chemotherapy; immunotherapy; surgery; radiation therapy; along with new therapies that are continuously evolving. Dr. David Oubre and the cancer team at Pontchartrain Cancer Center are experts in prescribing and the supervision of chemotherapy and immunotherapy administration. Chemotherapy or biological therapy is defined as any medication which is given either by mouth, injection or intravenously to kill or stop the formation of cancer cells."
