Medical Oncology

Meet Your Cancer Care Team Leader

A medical oncologist is your main health care provider when you have cancer. If you think of your cancer care providers as a team, your medical oncologist is the team captain.

Your medical oncologist specializes in treating cancer with medicine, including chemotherapy. This doctor works with oncologic surgeons, radiation oncologists, nurses and other specialists.

Here’s what you can expect from your Sanford Cancer team:

  • Personalized diagnosis, treatment and care from detection to survivorship
  • Answers to all of your questions
  • Help through all the steps you need to take before, during and after treatment
  • Communication of what tests you need and the results of those tests
  • Guidance in making treatment decisions to help prepare you and your loved ones for what’s ahead
  • Support for coping with the stresses of cancer
