Clinical & Radiation Oncologists

NOC is home to Oncologists who are passionate about their profession, dedicated to offering our patients the best treatment options available in individualised treatment plans. Our Oncologists have expertise in both clinical and radiation oncology, enabling NOC to provide care to patients from diagnosis, throughout their treatment period - whether this includes chemotherapy, radiation therapy or a combination of treatments - and into the remission phase when patients are monitored during follow-up consultations to ensure that they remain disease-free.

Our Oncologists are available by appointment during office hours from Monday to Friday and are on call for emergencies after hours and on weekends, ensuring a continuity of care that is hard to beat.
