Cancer & Research Center


In 2018, our new Bond Clinic Cancer & Research Center opened at our First Street Campus.  Although we had offered Oncology care for many years, we were thrilled to offer our patients a bright, state-of-the-art facility that was conducive to healing.  It was the goal of our team to offer amazing Oncology & Hematology care with the best research studies right in Polk County, FL
