Area’s only locally owned radiation oncology practice offers advanced expertise, innovative technologies and compassionate care.
FORT MYERS, Fla. (June 3, 2020) – Advocate Radiation Oncology, the area’s only locally owned and operated radiation oncology practice, has opened its Cape Coral office located at 909 Del Prado Blvd.
This facility joins Advocate offerings located in Port Charlotte and Fort Myers.
Advocate Radiation Oncology is directed by a team of board-certified radiation oncologists: Drs. Alan Brown, Arie Dosoretz, Daniel Dosoretz, Amy Fox, Graciela Garton, Michael Katin, David Rice and James Rubenstein. The team of physicians, who trained at the nation’s most renowned institutions, have served the Southwest Florida community for decades and are partnering to provide compassionate health care expertise to cancer patients.
“At Advocate Radiation Oncology, our purpose is in our name: To advocate for each and every patient during their cancer treatment,” said Dr. Arie Dosoretz, a founding partner at Advocate Radiation Oncology. “We focus on providing the most innovative radiation therapy available, delivered by top-tier doctors. Moreover, we are committed to providing a caring experience to each patient throughout their treatment journey.”
Patients at Advocate Radiation Oncology receive world-class treatment close to home. That includes an individualized treatment plan using the most advanced technology available, including Southwest Florida’s first Varian Halcyon machine at the Cape Coral practice. The Halcyon machine allows for extremely precise treatment while minimizing treatment time for each patient.
Other technologies available at Advocate’s practices include the “True-Beam” IMRT linear accelerator, which is used to precisely target and destroy tumor cells in the body with radiation, SRS (Stereotactic Radiosurgery) and SBRT (Stereotactic Body Radiation Therapy) capabilities allowing for radiation plans that can be delivered in as few as one treatment, and high-dose rate (HDR) brachytherapy. Advocate Radiation Oncology also offers fluent Spanish-speaking doctors and staff dedicated to bringing their family-focused care to all members of the Southwest Florida community.
“We are passionate about helping cancer patients and consider it a privilege to take care of these individuals and their families,” Dr. Brown said.
