Turville Bay’s Medical Physicists are a key part of your team. They work directly with the Radiation Oncologist during your treatment planning and its delivery. A Medical Physicist oversees your treatment planning with the Dosimetrist and continues to work with the Radiation Oncologist during your treatment. Our Medical Physicists are responsible for the quality control of our technology, as well, performing countless safety tests to ensure its performance.

Greeting you each morning.
Working directly with each physician and radiation therapist, our Oncology Nurses coordinate your care. They help educate, administer care and guide you through the radiation therapy part of your treatment by explaining possible side effects and how to manage them, assess how you are feeling and help you cope with change. With their cancer-specific knowledge they provide expert care. You’ll find our nurses are a wonderful resource for patients and their families.
Your Radiation Therapist will be with you daily during the course of your therapy. Therapists record, interpret and administer the treatment prescribed by your radiation oncologist under his or her supervision. They are highly skilled members of your care team, monitoring and observing your clinical progress and emotional needs as part of your daily care. In addition to their training they are all certified by the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists (ARRT).
Though you may never meet your Dosimetrist, your care is their first priority. Dosimetrists carefully calculate the radiation dose used to treat a tumor or abnormality. Using computers, along with your radiation oncologist and a medical physicist, your treatment plans are developed. Dosimetrists are certified by the American Association of Medical Dosimetrists (AAMD).
As Turville Bay's Cancer Registrar, Stacey captures a complete history, diagnosis, treatment, and health status for every patient while protecting patient identity. The data is combined with other cancer centers in the U.S. to provide essential information to researchers, healthcare providers, and public health officials to better monitor and advance cancer treatments, conduct research, and improve cancer prevention and screening programs.
In healthcare today, communication is essential. And when caring for those with cancer, communication is at the very core of it. Physicians, nurses, and other clinical staff are in daily communication with each other, and with the technology that cares for patients, regarding their progress. Our IT team is entrusted with confidentially caring for patient's healthcare information by keeping all communications flowing smoothly.
