Why Choose Us

Compassionate Care Beyond Cancer

Cancer is personal to us.

The Dan L Duncan Comprehensive Cancer Center was founded with a vision of providing exceptional cancer care to patients in the Greater Houston area, across Texas, and beyond. Since its inception, the center has grown to become a leading provider of cancer care, recognized for its compassionate approach, personalized treatment plans, and access to innovative clinical trials.

At the Dan L Duncan Comprehensive Cancer Center, we are committed to putting our patients first. We understand that a cancer diagnosis can be overwhelming, and we strive to make the treatment process as stress-free and supportive as possible. Our experienced team of oncologists, navigators, nurses, and staff work closely with each one of our patients to develop a personalized treatment plan that meets their individual needs and goals.

A cancer diagnosis changes everything.

Caring for the Whole You

We are a cancer center that believes in an interdisciplinary approach to precision medicine. This means we dig down to the molecular and genetic makeup of your tumor. This means we get to know your specific disease. To us, you are not just a patient. We see you as a unique human being with ideas, concerns, and expectations.

We get to know you so that your treatment plan is exactly right for you. We want you to get better and enhance your quality of life.

Our approach means that we work together, to do the right thing for you. We want to keep your stress low and your spirits high — and infuse every moment with humankindness. So your cancer treatment plan is truly personal.

Because we believe that there’s a difference between curing a disease and healing a whole person.

We’re here to help you do both.
