Doctor & patient

The Terk Oncology practice is designed around you.

We understand what you’re going through. That’s why we want you to feel comfortable at every turn, with the way you’re treated as a person and as a patient.

You’ll feel it as soon as you walk through our doors: a comfortable and intimate atmosphere with a warm and welcoming staff. We’ll schedule appointments at your convenience, stay on schedule whenever possible, and even arrange for transportation.

And while our physicians and staff will spend all the time it takes to care for both your physical and emotional needs, they’ll work with all of your doctors to determine your course of care quickly and seamlessly, thanks to their advanced electronic medical records system. Terk Oncology physicians are all highly experienced and well-credentialed, having worked at major area hospitals. With our cutting-edge radiotherapy technology in their trained and skilled hands, you’ll be treated using the best, by the best.

THE TERK ONCOLOGY TEAM

You will meet a number of people at Terk Oncology during your course of radiation treatments. Leading your radiation team is a radiation oncologist, a doctor who specializes in treating cancer with radiation.

Radiation Oncologists

You will meet your radiation oncologist at your first visit, and he will continue to see you throughout the course of treatment to monitor and take care of any side effects. In addition to working with all the members of the radiation therapy team, your radiation oncologist works very closely with your other doctors.

Radiation Therapists

Radiation therapists are the trained professionals who actually administer your daily radiation treatment. They do so under the doctor’s prescription and supervision, maintaining daily records and regularly checking the treatment equipment to make sure it is working properly.

Medical Physicists and Dosimetrists

Medical physicists and dosimetrists are responsible for developing radiation plans according to what your doctor prescribes. Using computers, they develop percision treatment plans that can best destroy the tumor while sparing surrounding healthy tissue.
