The fight STARTs here.

State-of-the-art genetic testing for more effective cancer care.

Today, fighting cancer is an individualized effort, with treatment being targeted to each person and the unique genetic characteristics of each tumor. At the START Center for Cancer Care, we are the first in South Texas to provide comprehensive molecular testing of tumors, an essential first step in fighting your cancer most appropriately and effectively. Genetic testing enables us to compare our findings with data gathered through our in-house pathology lab and tumor bank. This allows your cancer specialist to look for specific genetic markers that can help you and your doctor decide which of today’s leading-edge treatments are most likely to be appropriate and effective for you.

Continuity of Care:

“Quarterbacking” for your best treatment and outcomes.

When it comes to cancer, it’s important to fight on all fronts. This is why our focus is on multispecialty cancer services, like chemotherapy, surgery, and radiation treatment (including radiosurgery, which isn’t surgery at all). It’s also why we serve as the “quarterback” for all your cancer care. You see, our approach is to treat cancer patients in an inclusive, personalized and coordinated way that involves care from a variety of different kinds of specialists and providers. We function as the vanguards of your cancer treatment, facilitating your other appointments and staying informed and involved every step of the way. Why? Because it’s essential to the effectiveness of your care.

Pharmacy Services

Reduce your burden with in-house pharmacy services.

Cancer and its treatment are already challenging enough. That’s why the START Center for Cancer Care provides in-house pharmacy services to make your care more convenient. There are many, many different kinds of medications that can be involved in treating cancer and in the management of other conditions, whether related or unrelated to your cancer. In addition, cancer medications can be complicated and aren’t well understood by pharmacies not specially focused on cancer care.
Whatever your Rx needs, our pharmacy — staffed with credentialed pharmacists and pharmacy techs — is here to make your life easier.
