About Diablo Valley Oncology
Diablo Valley Oncology / Hematology Medical Group (DVO) provides comprehensive cancer care to patients by bringing together medical oncology, hematology, chemotherapy, radiation therapy, CT/MRI/PET-CT, clinical trials and research, and supportive care all in one convenient location. The specialized care you receive at DVO combines the best in clinical medicine with an outstanding staff and services that meet the individual needs of each patient.
We at Diablo Valley Oncology / Hematology Medical Group believe that the stress of beginning cancer therapy can be reduced if the treatment space is patient centered, peaceful, intimate, and beautiful. Because we designed our center from the ground up, our infusion suite is lovely and calming, yet state of the art and extremely functional.
All forms of medical therapy (chemotherapy, immunotherapy, hormonal therapy, experimental therapy and supportive therapy) are administered to patients in individual private spaces with plenty of room for family members. Reminiscent of a five star airport lounge, the setting offers comfortable reclining chair/beds, soothing music overhead, DVD players, and wireless internet access. Because we are the largest single site of cancer treatment in the county with eight oncologists serving patients at the our main location in Pleasant Hill, we have medical coverage at all times while patients are receiving treatment.
In addition, five compassionate and technically-expert chemotherapy certified nurses are right there, constantly monitoring and assisting patients, which results in the highest nurse to patient ratio and the absolute best care. We are especially proud of the outstanding staff throughout the organization; our team is dedicated to the goal of easing patients through their treatments while meeting each individual patient’s needs.
In January 2012, Diablo Valley Oncology / Hematology Medical Group joined practices with Pacific Urology, forming Contra Costa County’s first private multi-specialty group of its kind.
Because urology and oncology are complementary specialties, we will be able to deliver an unprecedented level of continuity of care to patients requiring both specialty services. The new business structure allows our doctors and nurses to work unusually closely on these cases.

Diablo Valley Oncology Community Outreach
Diablo Valley Oncology physicians and staff are passionate about community outreach and education. We have developed cancer-specific educational seminars that are free and open to the public giving attendees the opportunity to learn from medical experts and ask questions regarding their cancer journey.
We have a strong partnership with local & national nonprofit organizations like the American Cancer Society, the Cancer Support Community and the Leukemia and Lymphoma Foundation. Our physicians and staff participate by walking, raising money and creating awareness for the fight against cancer. From pouring beer at a local street fairs where we create awareness for prostate and skin cancer to honoring patients as we release butterflies at Wings of Hope, we actively support and interact with our community.
Diablo Valley Oncology belongs to several local Chamber of Commerce organizations and our physicians speak throughout the community on cancer prevention and early detection.
