Bakersfield cancer center teams with UCLA pediatric docs

BAKERSFIELD, Calif. (KBAK/KBFX) — Comprehensive Blood & Cancer Center is teaming with the UCLA Mattel Children's Hospital for a local pediatric oncology and hematology center.

UCLA doctors will provide on-site evaluations beginning Nov. 20 at the clinic, 6501 Truxtun Ave. in Bakersfield, according to CBCC.

"We have specialized people from UCLA who are available locally to help the local patients, so they can be supervised here, seen here, and then their ongoing treatment can be done here," said Dr. Ravi Patel of the CBCC on Wednesday.
