Located at the Praxair Cancer Center at Danbury Hospital, Western Connecticut Medical Group Oncology/Hematology, Danbury provides comprehensive care to adults in Danbury and surrounding communities. Nearly 1,300 new patients each year receive care from the oncologists and hematologists in our Danbury and New Milford practices.
We specialize in the care for many types of cancer and blood diseases, including:
- Blood disorders not related to cancer
- Breast cancer
- Colon cancer
- Lung cancer
- Multiple myeloma

Patients benefit from advanced, expert care from our doctors and access to clinical trials and new therapies. We follow comprehensive guidelines from the National Comprehensive Cancer Network for diagnosing, treating, and researching cancers.
Our doctors participate in tumor boards. In these meetings, we gather oncologists, hematologists, surgeons, nurses and other specialists to discuss blood diseases, benign tumors, and cancerous tumors. This combined expertise helps us reach the best treatment option for patients with complex diseases.
What to expect
We never want patients to struggle with remembering all of their next steps. So we do it all together before they leave our office. We’ll cover everything, from explaining diagnoses to scheduling follow-up appointments for patients. Our nurses are the patients’ main point of contact. Having one point of contact makes it easier to ask questions and get answers.
If needed, we subscribe to a translation service through which we have access to more than 100 language translators who also are medical professionals. This ensures our patients receive accurate information about their condition and treatment.
