A multidisciplinary team of caring, dedicated, and competent professionals, led by experienced, respected Johns Hopkins radiation oncologists, assists cancer patients step by step through their entire radiation therapy experience at Johns Hopkins University Department of Radiation Oncology. This specialized team of radiation oncologists, medical physicists, dosimetrists, radiation therapists, and radiation oncology nurses offers radiation treatment supported by the research and clinical expertise of Johns Hopkins in a convenient suburban Washington, DC, location.
"We are building on the stellar services that have been offered at Suburban for years to create an elite cancer program in the DC metropolitan area to deliver state-of-the-art cancer care, innovate in the development of cancer treatments, and participate in the training of future leaders in cancer medicine and research," says Irene Gage, MD, regional medical director of oncology for the Johns Hopkins National Capital Region (NCR).
