Our Staff

Radiation Oncologist
Dr. Gayla Lowery

Director of Radiation Therapy
Jerry Sintay, CMD, is certified by the Medical Dosimetrist Certification Board.

A CMD works to calculate the radiation dose to make sure the tumor receives the radiation dose as prescribed by the doctor. Using complex computer programs, the dosimetrist develops treatment plans that can best destroy the cancer while sparing the normal tissue. Since treatment plans are often very complex, the dosimetrist works with the radiation oncologist and physicist to develop the treatment that is best for each individual patient.

Radiation Therapists
Radiation therapists administer the daily radiation treatments under the radiation oncologist's prescription and supervision. They maintain records of the treatments and monitor the treatment machines during the radiation treatments to assure that they are working properly.

Radiation therapists are certified by the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists.

Clinic Assistants
Clinic assistants schedule and register patients for the radiation therapy consultation with the radiation oncologists. Clinic assistants also acquire the patient's medical records and interview the patient to collect their medical history data for assessment by the radiation oncologist. A clinic assistant assists the radiation oncologist during patient examinations.
