Radiation oncologists are the doctors who oversee your radiation treatment. They work with other specialists, such as medical oncologists and surgeons, to coordinate your cancer care.
You will meet with your radiation oncologist the first time you visit the Department of Radiation Oncology and during the planning phase of your treatment.
Your radiation oncologist will prescribe the exact radiation dosage as well as the number of treatments you will need.
Once your daily radiation treatment sessions begin, you will have scheduled appointments with your radiation oncologist at least once every week.
