Minnesota Oncology has made the very difficult decision to close our Minneapolis Clinic location, just for the day, this coming Monday, June 1. After reviewing information provided from multiple sources, we believe this is the safest choice for our patients and staff at this time.

Thank you for your patience and understanding.
