Contra Costa Oncology Announces New Location and Expansion of Cancer Care Services

WALNUT CREEK, CA--(Marketwire - October 7, 2009) - Contra Costa Oncology opened the doors to its new, state-of-the-art medical oncology office early this month as part of its expanded cancer care services.

Ideally located in the Shadelands Business Park, this new facility will provide patients with an added level of convenience and care. The remodeled 6,200-square-foot office will not only offer greater access to parking and easy accessibility to the John Muir Medical Center, located just a few minutes away, but the site will also be the only private practice in Walnut Creek to offer infusion suites.

"We really focused on the patients' well-being when we selected the location and design features for the new center," said Michael Sherman, M.D., Ph.D., the practice's Founder and Director. "I really wanted to create an atmosphere of peace and tranquility so we incorporated elements like a Zen garden, natural light, and warm interior colors, while providing our patients with comprehensive, cutting-edge treatment programs for all forms of cancer."

After founding Contra Costa Oncology, Dr. Sherman expanded the practice to include satellite office locations in Concord, Rossmoor and San Ramon, providing patients with a multitude of convenient location options. Dr. Sherman has expanded the initial practice that was established by Dr. Dan Ben-Zeev, the founder of oncology care in this area dating back to 1968.

Contra Costa Oncology has privileges at all local hospitals and all of their physicians are board-certified. In addition to Dr. Sherman, Contra Costa Oncology team also includes Dr. Diana Superfin, who is fluent in Russian and Ukrainian languages, Dr. Ann Wexler, who is fluent in Spanish, and approximately 30 staff members, including two Nurse Practitioners.
