Patient Care Philosophy

Compassionate and attentive, Dr. Emily Dunn believes in individualized care tailored to the needs of the patient.

As a radiation oncologist, Dr. Dunn understands how important it is for patients to feel connected to their oncologist. She fosters that patient-provider relationship by taking the time to get to know them.

“Spending quality time face-to-face with my patients creates a better understanding for them of their diagnosis and treatment, and it gives me insight into their wishes and fears. Being allowed into a person’s life, to care for them during such a challenging time, is a privilege.”

She chose radiation oncology because of its precision in treating cancer and its ever-evolving advancements in technology.

“The dynamically changing field of radiation oncology, the pace at which we’re learning about cancer, and the treatments we’re able to provide patients is exciting.”
