Pediatric Oncology Services

SLO Oncology & Hematology Health Center services include pediatric oncology/hematology care. This is the only medical resource for families facing and dealing with the diagnosis of pediatric cancer in San Luis Obispo County. Pediatric oncology nurse practitioner Mary Mott Okimoto has worked at several of the leading pediatric oncology hospitals in the country, including: Lucile Packard at Stanford, Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center, and University of California San Francisco.  

Once a patient is diagnosed, we will work closely with the child's oncologist or hematologist to administer chemotherapy and/or medications at our office whenever possible. Additionally, we can help with symptom management and serve as a local contact for the primary pediatric oncology team. We bring local knowledge and community support so that the family can focus on what matters most - their child. Partnering with local doctors, cancer resource organizations and experienced pediatric oncology professionals, Coastal Integrative Cancer Care will provide high quality pediatric care in a local community of hope.
