What is a Medical Oncologist?

A medical oncologist is a physician who directs your medical care while you are undergoing treatment for cancer. Your first appointment will be spent discussing and understanding your diagnosis as well as options for treatment. Treatment may include surgery, chemotherapy and radiation.

Your oncologist will monitor your care and treatment during each succeeding appointment. He or she will work with you to improve your quality of life during your treatment by managing your symptoms and pain with the appropriate medications.
