A skilled medical team, led by a Riverside radiation oncologist, will coordinate your treatment during radiation therapy.
Your radiation oncologist will oversee your care, prescribe and monitor your treatment plan, address any side effects and ensure that you receive the most effective and safe treatment possible.
Our radiation oncologists see patients in one of our three radiation therapy centers. Your doctor and any of the staff are always available to answer any questions you have about your treatment.
