Radiation Therapy and the High Stakes of Cancer

By HERWriter
Rate This

Dr. Robert Wollman felt drawn to cancer patients during his third year in medical school, when he first began to spend time with patients rather than books. He has always felt that the fight against cancer was the highest of all stakes in medicine.

This became and has remained his primary interest. Since medical school he has progressed into the physics and technology aspects of treating cancer, in the form of radiation therapy.

"Dr. Robert Wollman is a board-certified radiation oncologist at Saint John’s Health Center in Santa Monica, California. He graduated from the State University of New York at Binghamton with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Biology and he received his M.D. from New York University School of Medicine. His internship was spent at Columbia-Presbyterian Medical Center in New York and his residency was completed at Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center in New York where he served as Chief Resident in Radiation Oncology."
