    Clinical and Support Services

    clinician and patientPatients have access to a range of clinical and support services at Dana-Farber/New Hampshire Oncology-Hematology, including:

    Medical oncology: Medical oncology care and outpatient infusion are provided by Dana-Farber Cancer Institute. Infusion services include chemotherapy, as well as additional medications and treatments (such as hydration). Patients can receive their infusion in private or semi-private "bays," depending on their preference on a particular day.

    Genetic counseling: The genetic counseling program can help guide a personalized approach to treatment and identify a patient's risk of developing other cancers. Our team can also help individuals with a family history of cancer assess their cancer risk.

    Survivorship: At the Adult Survivorship Program at DF/NHOH, experts work with survivors to develop a personalized care plan. This plan helps survivors and their healthcare providers address their unique medical and psychosocial needs, identify needed screening tests, and manage potential long-term or late effects of treatment.

    Dana-Farber also offers a number of online resources to help you address the range of issues you may face after treatment, including the changes in the body after cancer treatment: emotional and physical symptom management; legal rights concerning health care and employment; finding support groups; maintaining, repairing, or enhancing personal relationships, and pursuing appropriate follow-up care.

    Second opinion clinics: Dana-Farber offers monthly second opinion clinics in Londonderry for patients seeking additional discussion of their diagnosis or treatment plan.

    Clinical trials: Patients may have a chance to participate in a clinical trial, which is a research study that may test the safety and effectiveness of new therapies, look at new ways to give treatment, see how lifestyle changes can help cancer patients, or explore methods to keep cancer from recurring.

    Patients have access to clinical trials through Dana-Farber/Harvard Cancer Center, a nationally designated Comprehensive Cancer Center, and one of the largest cancer research programs in the nation.

    You can learn more about clinical trials in this video, "Entering a clinical trial: Is it right for you?". To learn about clinical trials available at our Londonderry Center, contact Kristie Weeks, RN, at 603-552-9100.

    Nutrition counseling: Balanced nutrition is an important part of cancer treatment and survivorship. Our registered dietitian works with patients to design a healthful diet that can help rebuild a body's cells and energy level, and manage the side effects of treatment.

    resource roomResource Area: The Resource Area offers a variety of materials on cancer topics, including free informational brochures and books you can borrow.

    Social work: Our oncology social worker can help patients and families cope with the emotional aspects of cancer treatment as well as practical issues. We can help identify community resources such as support groups, transportation and financial assistance programs, and disability benefits.

    Financial services: Our financial counselor helps explain billing policies, determine eligibility for insurance of financial assistance, and contact insurance carriers and other providers on your behalf.

    Spiritual care: Spirituality or faith may be a source of strength or comfort while undergoing treatment. A designated chaplain serves as part of your care team and is available to offer support and guidance during cancer treatment.

Lab, imaging, urgent care, and other services are provided within the same building by Elliot Health System (see the Services section on this page).

    Where will I receive in-patient care, if needed?

    If you need to be admitted for in-patient care, you may select the hospital of your choice. In addition to local options, you will have access to Dana-Farber's in-patient services in Boston. You, in consultation with your physician, can make the choice that best suits your needs.

    How can I contact DF/NHOH?

    Please call us at 603-552-9100.

    When did the unit open? Where is it located?

    Dana-Farber/New Hampshire Oncology-Hematology opened December 8, 2008. The unit is located on the Elliot Medical Center's Londonderry campus at 40 Buttrick Rd, Londonderry, NH.

    Who are the physicians who see patients in the DF/NHOH unit in Londonderry?

    Fred Briccetti, MD

    Dr. Briccetti completed his internship and residency at The New York Hospital, and a Fellowship in hematology and oncology at The New York Hospital, Cornell Medical Center.

    Meredith J. Selleck, MD

    Dr. Selleck earned her medical degree at New York Medical College. She completed her fellowship training, internship, and residency at Columbia Presbyterian Medical Center.

    Jeanna Walsh, MD, Medical Director

    Dr. Walsh is the Medical Director at DF/NHOH and is a graduate of the State University of New York at the Upstate Medical University. She completed a fellowship in hematology and oncology and her residency in internal medicine at the University of Rochester.

    I currently see a physician from NHOH. What are my options for continuing to see the same physician?

    NHOH physicians Dr. Fred Briccetti, Dr. Meredith Selleck, and Dr. Jeanna Walsh from NHOH practices joined the Dana-Farber medical staff and provide services in Londonderry.

    They will work with the other members of your care team - surgeons, radiation oncologists, and primary care physicians - to ensure other aspects of your care are unaffected.

    While providing care in Londonderry, they will also continue to see patients at their practices in the Southern and Central New Hampshire region, including Concord, Hooksett, Laconia, and Exeter. A list of each physician's practice locations can be provided upon request.

    When I see one of the four physicians listed above at a NHOH location, am I still a Dana-Farber patient?

    No. When you are seen at the Dana-Farber unit in Londonderry (or at any other Dana-Farber facility), you are a Dana-Farber patient. If you see these physicians (or any other NHOH physician) at one of NHOH's independent practice locations, you would be an NHOH patient. Similarly, if you were to be admitted to a hospital and receive in-patient physician care from one of the NHOH physicians, you would be an NHOH patient at that time (as well as a patient of the particular hospital).
