Dr. Lemanne's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Lemanne "Dr. Lemanne, a Stanford-trained medical oncologist and recognized authority on integrative oncology, has treated thousands of cancer patients using conventional, functional, and integrative approaches. She enjoys working with patients who insist on the best in both conventional and complementary cancer treatments, and who also desire to use precisely-targeted diet, exercise, supplement, and lifestyle interventions to enhance treatment response and survival. OVERVIEW Dr. Lemanne is a rarity, a conventionally-trained medical oncologist and a renowned authority in integrative and functional oncology. She has completed the University of Arizona's flagship 2-year integrative medicine fellowship. Over the past two decades Dr. Lemanne has practiced in both community and academic settings. She was the first medical oncologist appointed to the integrative medicine faculty at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center. MEDICAL EDUCATION Dr. Lemanne decided to become a physician at age seven, following the deaths of several playmates from cancer. Her premedical undergraduate work was in biophysics. She graduated with academic distinction from UC Berkeley, and upon entering UC San Francisco for her medical education, Dr. Lemanne was appointed Regents' Scholar, the highest academic honor in the University of California system. While working toward her MD degree at UCSF, she concurrently earned a masters degree in public health (MPH) from UC Berkeley. The focus of her MPH work was nutritional epidemiology. Following medical school, Dr. Lemanne completed a three-year internal medicine residency at Henry Ford Hospital in inner-city Detroit. The next step in her training was a medical oncology fellowship at the prestigious Stanford University Medical School, completed in 1993. Dr. Lemanne is a 2011 graduate of the University of Arizona's renowned 2-year integrative medicine fellowship. In 2012 Dr. Lemanne earned her fourth degree, a masters in science writing from Johns Hopkins University. She was awarded the "Outstanding Graduate Student" prize by the faculty. AUTHOR AND LECTURER Dr. Lemanne writes works for popular audiences and has published peer-reviewed scientific journal articles and textbook chapters.

Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Lemanne "The most important decision you'll make about cancer treatment is your choice of physician. In my opinion, the best oncologists are gritty explorers. They use science to go beyond the standard treatment protocols. They've read the research showing that nutrition matters, for example. 

What's more, these docs prepare for your appointment. They look at you, not a screen.  They respond to your questions with respect. 

My practice is strictly science-based. But science can't answer everything. I encourage my patients to bring in articles or questions about alternative or complementary cancer treatments they're interested in.

I study intensely every day, and have for decades. Even so, if a patient finds new information that sounds promising, I am excited to explore it together. 

For me, questions are never an irritation to be rushed through or dismissed as unimportant.  For me, questions are exciting, a chance to find better treatments."

Dr. Lemanne Says:

We are not for everyone. We are only for the proactive, those who gain comfort from being in control of their cancer care.

You are a proactive cancer patient if:

  • You want an oncologist who'll interact with you as an equal, with whom you can discuss relevant articles you've found, or treatment ideas you're interested in.
  • You think oncologists should not only be expert in anticancer
