What Physicians Should Know About Tampa Bay Radiation Oncology

What to Know When Referring Patients to TBRO

When you refer your patient to Tampa Bay Radiation Oncology for radiation therapy, you’re partnering with one of the most knowledgeable and compassionate radiation cancer treatment teams in the Tampa Bay area. With over 186 years of combined physician experience, over 10,000 patients treated, and 239 cancer treatment options available at our local offices, we work with you to determine the best path forward for your patient, whether that involves radiation therapy or not.

At Tampa Bay Radiation Oncology, we take pride in the time our physicians spend with each patient, before, during and after treatment. We spend time reviewing records, imaging history, the cancer’s progression, the patient’s personal treatment desires and more. We provide care that is tailored to each patient’s specific case and personal treatment desires.

Unlike other cancer treatment centers, we let you make the decisions when it comes to lab work and imaging. We respect the relationships and trust you have with your providers, so we’re agnostic when it comes to determining the best tools to assess each case and recommend treatment options. Our focus is on finding the best path to treatment for each patient, and we will work with you one on one to determine what your patient’s protocol should entail. If we have questions, we’ll call you.

What TBRO Patients Are Saying

“I was a little nervous at first, but Dr. Steel explained everything to me very well and the staff was great. I was surprised by how easy the treatment was, and I’m hopeful cancer is behind me forever. The doctor was great and the staff couldn’t be any better. I encourage everyone who suspects they have cancer to take care of it – don’t let it go.”

StevenProstate Cancer Patient

“TBRO was recommended by my surgeon, and they gave me clear and concise explanations of every part of my treatment. They told me what to expect and had a very caring attitude. I would tell anyone with cancer that I received very professional treatment from TBRO, and that it’s very important to find a team that you trust and abide by their recommendations. I’m very optimistic that I’ll be fine.”

“I owe special thanks to my two primary technicians for their patience, professionalism and understanding. I was concerned about claustrophobic conditions, but they helped me through it, and I didn’t experience any discomfort. There were no surprises – everything was discussed and explained prior to my treatments. I’m very thankful that I had such professionals to help.”
