He also received comprehensive training in the utilization of interstitial and intracavitary brachytherapy for breast and gynecologic malignancies. As a resident, Dr. Francis actively participated in pre-clinical and clinical research, publishing over 25 peer-reviewed manuscripts and textbook chapters in the management of head and neck, gynecologic, and breast cancers. He has co-authored institutional clinical protocols and presented his work at numerous national conferences. He is an active peer reviewer for several journals in the field of oncology and participates in undergraduate and medical student education.

“I became a radiation oncologist to help people through a terrible and frightening time of their lives. Joining the immensely talented team at Radiation Oncology Associates affords me the opportunity to focus every day on what I love most: providing the highest quality cancer care for people close to their home.”
