How To Choose A Radiation Oncologist

Next » « Previous


When looking for a cancer doctor who specialisizes in radiation treatment, consider the following:

  • Look for a doctor who is board certified in radiation oncology. Also look at the institution or institutions the doctor is affiliated with. The better the institution, the higher the standards which are applied to the professionals who are allowed to be affiliated with the institution.
  • Look at the treatment facility. 
    • The technology available to treat you can vary greatly from one facility to another. 
    • Travel time to the facility becomes important because treatment is likely to be daily over a period of weeks.
  • If you have health insurance, do the doctor and the facility accept it? If not, is there a less expensive doctor with the right qualifications who works in an acceptable facility that costs less?
