Your Doctors

Colorectal Surgeon

These surgeons specialize in the diagnosis and treatment of conditions of the large intestine and rectum. Cancer surgeons perform biopsies (taking tiny tissue samples) to test for cancer. They also surgically remove tumors and surrounding tissue to evaluate for the presence of cancer.


Medical Oncologist

Medical oncologists (cancer doctors) have specialized training in diagnosing and treating GI cancer using medications, including chemotherapy, immunotherapy, and targeted therapy. 


Radiation Oncologist

Radiation oncologists have specialized training in using high-energy radiation to destroy cancer or prevent its spread while protecting healthy tissue. 


Advanced Practice Provider

Our skilled advanced practice providers (APPs) specialize in diagnosing and treating GI cancers. They see patients independently and occasionally alongside your doctor. APPs can give exams, write prescriptions, and help prevent or treat any issues. Our APPs meet weekly to discuss patient needs.


Genetic Counselors

The genetic counselors in the Cancer Genetics Program have special training in the science of cancer genetics. They serve as your main point of contact during your initial consultation and follow-up visit. They assess family histories and test results and help you make decisions.
