Due to rising numbers of COVID-19 infections in our community, NHO strongly encourages the use of medical-grade masks for patients and visitors. If you do not have a medical-grade mask (3-ply surgical or procedure mask) we will be happy to provide one for you at the clinic. See any NHO team member for assistance. Thank you for helping us keep each other safe!

What NHO Patients Say

"...everyone was so nice; from the time you walk in the door through the time you walk out. I have referred friends to this office in their time of need also. To sum it up: professional, compassionate, knowledgeable, down-to-earth."

"Everyone is kind, compassionate and knowledgable. They always listen to my thoughts and questions and take them into consideration. The nurses, lab techs and support staff are always considerate and make sure I am comfortable physically and mentally and that my needs have been met." 

"My experience has gone as well as it possibly can consider the situation. I honestly can't imagine going through this with any other oncology team!"

"I feel like the staff treats me like I am very important. That they do everything they can for me. I never feel like they are rushing off to the next task or patient. I feel very informed and feel they are doing everything possible for me." 

"We returned to NHO after receiving two other opinions which gave us another treatment option. We are so happy we stayed at NHO as my husband's care has been superior and his quality of life has been good. We feel ALL staff at NHO are skilled, friendly and caring."
