Newark Radiation Oncology has two physicians on staff. This assures that you will have access to a physician any time you may need one. These physicians are called Radiation Oncologists. Radiation Oncologists are medical doctors with advanced training in the use of radiation for the treatment of cancer and other diagnoses. This training involves many aspects of general oncology, medicine and physics. The Radiation Oncologists at our Center are board certified in Radiation Oncology. This certification, based on written and oral exams, indicates that the physician is qualified to practice Radiation Oncology. Our Radiation Oncologists are responsible for all activities in the Radiation Oncology Center. Our Radiation Oncologist designs the radiation treatments and constantly monitors the delivery. The Radiation Oncologist also monitors the response of the patient to the treatments and treats any side effects of the therapy.
