Radiation Oncologists are doctors who oversee the care of each cancer patient undergoing radiation treatment. They develop and prescribe each cancer patient’s treatment plan, they make sure that every treatment is accurately given, and they monitor the patient’s progress and adjust treatment to make sure patients get quality care throughout treatment. Radiation oncologists also help identify and treat any side effects of radiation therapy and work closely with all members of the radiation oncology team.
