Kennewick Doctor Rated Top Oncologist
A Kennewick doctor is rated one of the top oncologists in the nation.
The Consumer Research Council of America has given the honor to Dr. Sheila Rege of the Northwest Cancer Center.
The council assessed doctors on experience, training, professional associations, and board certification.
Dr. Rege is a radiation oncologist and says while the ranking is an honor, patient care comes first with or without the recognition. "It's nice to be recognized, I've always tried to do my best for patients, tried to serve on committees to try to improve the health care problem. It's still new, it's nice though. "
A radiation oncologist is a doctor who specializes in the treatment of cancer patients, using radiation therapy as the main type of treatment.
