Medical Oncologists and Hematologists
Medical Oncologists and Hematologists care for our patients from the moment of diagnosis throughout treatment and recovery. The focus of medical oncology is around "systemic therapy", or providing treatment for cancer that has or could spread to other parts of the body, or in providing treatment to help shrink cancerous tumor so the surgeon can more effectively remove it. Hematologists provide expert treatment for various blood diseases, both malignant and benign. Our Medical Oncologists/Hematologists also coordinate treatment given by other specialists.
Radiation Oncologists are physicians with advanced training who are key decision makers in choosing whether radiation therapy may be an appropriate course of treatment and the type of radiation therapy an individual may receive. This physician leads the radiation oncology clinical team from the initial consult through follow up care. They prescribe the appropriate radiation therapy treatment plan and provide close patient management throughout the course of treatment. The radiation oncologists work closely with the entire radiation oncology team of experts – including physicists, dosimetrists, and radiation therapists - to deliver safe and effective treatments.
