Sue A. Mandell, MD

Medical Director, Radiation Oncologist

“Over the years, I’m often asked why I chose to take care of patients with cancer. I find it rewarding to work with people who show such bravery. I learn from their strength, their resilience, and their optimism. I am honored to know, and to have known the kindest, bravest, funniest, and strongest people during these last 25 years that I’ve worked in the field of oncology. It is with pleasure and excitement that I continue to learn to be a better physician—and a better human being—from those I meet.”
