Our Oncology Team

Medical Oncologist are trained in a branch of medicine that deals with the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of cancer. The primary job of our medical oncologists is managing cancer. Our oncologists think of themselves as more than just chemotherapy doctors. In fact, they wear many hats.

During the course of your treatment, your medical oncologist will attempt to correctly diagnose and assess the stage of your cancer, recommend and implement a treatment plan and monitor your progress. To do these things your oncologist needs to use many skills including:

Counsellor and advisor: Your oncologist should explain your diagnosis, your prognosis and your treatment options to you and your family.

Physician and care giver/coordinator: Your oncologist will not only look after your cancer but also your needs including management of your symptoms. Often your oncologist is the person who will start palliative care, if needed.

Student and researcher: Your oncologist will keep up to date with the latest treatments and will often be involved in testing them through clinical trials and medical research.

Manager: Finally, your oncologist will usually be part of a multidisciplinary team and often be the main manager of that team.

About the Provider

Dr. Jincy Clement, an oncologist and hematologist, has joined FCPP along with the Oncology group she worked with at the Emanuel Specialty Care in Turlock.

Dr. Clement attended medical school at Christian Medical Collage in her native India, then completed an internal medicine residency at Penn State University and the Penn State Milton S. Hershey Medical Center in 2012. After her residency, she completed a three-year fellowship in hematology and oncology at the State University of New York Stony Brook University and She’s seen the latest research treating patients at the Stony Brook University Hospital and military veterans at the nearby Northport VA Medical Center.

A childhood experience with a loved one pushed Dr. Clement down a medical path at a young age. “My grandfather had diabetes. A bout of shingles led to sepsis and ultimately a diabetic coma,” she said. “I was 12, and saw the effect his failing health had on my entire family. In the aftermath of his death, I set my sights on becoming a physician.”

It was during her residency that she decided to specialize in oncology. “During the oncology rotation, I found myself spending extra time on the hospital floors, talking with patients and providing them extra support,” she said. “I am a caring and optimistic person by nature”. “ I consider my patients like my family and take time to listen to them and formulate a plan”

Dr. Clement has a special clinical interest in breast cancer oncology and is board certified in internal medicine and Medical Oncology and board eligible in hematology. She also services as Adjunct Assistant Professor hematology& Oncology at Touro University of California - College of Osteopathic Medicine. She speaks English, Hindi, and Malayalam.
