The future of oral oncolytics is huge. Everyday there’s new drugs that are invented that are able to keep our patients at home. They don’t have to travel to the centers, they’re able to live their lives fully away from the practice. They get a phone call from the nurse, they see the doctors once a month, give or take, and they’re able to continue with their lives. They’re not stuck in a chair in an infusion center, wasting 3 or 4 hours of their day.
