Lisa C.S. Rootvik, ARNP, AOCNP

Director of Cancer Survivorship

“I have chosen to work with cancer patients throughout my entire career because caring for this population is my passion and unequivocally my calling in life. Because cancer patients are far more than just their cancer diagnosis, treating each patient holistically and helping patients achieve their own life goals are the backbones of my practice in oncology.”
