Medical oncologists specialize in the treatment of all cancers, and do their treatment with medicines—chemotherapy, hormone therapy, immunotherapy, and targeted therapy—as opposed to surgery or radiation. Modern advances in the treatment of cancer with medicines have revolutionized the prospects for cancer patients, and the changes and improvements only come faster and faster.
MOHA has been involved with the cancer clinic at the Wayne County Hospital for many years. Staff and personnel changes, along with a nation-wide shortage of oncologists, have provoked some interruptions. We are very happy and honored to have the opportunity to resume our relationship with the hospital, staff, and community in Corydon.
Dr. Tara Graff, D.O, will be the attending oncologist. Dr. Graff is a Midwest native and a graduate of the Medical College of Wisconsin cancer training program in Milwaukee, WI. She will be assisted at the clinic by Katie Kyhl, R.N., another Midwest native who has extensive experience in Iowa and at Memorial-Sloan Kettering in New York City. The first clinic date has been set for Thursday, October 16th with a monthly clinic schedule to follow. The intention is to increase the frequency of the clinic as the demand dictates.
This will be a full-service medical oncology clinic with all medical cancer treatments available at the hospital outpatient facility. For more information, please call the Wayne County Hospital Specialty Clinic at 641-872-5259.
