      Why Does Experience Matter?

      Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.

      Dr. Just says...

      Dr. Richard Just has practiced Medical Oncology and Hematology in the Inland North County of San Diego for 31 years. Over this time he has received numerous awards and honors, but values most his personal interaction with patients and their families.

      Born and raised in Chicago, Illinois, Dr. Just attended the University of Michigan for pre-med education and received a B.S. in Zoology. It was in Ann Arbor where he met and then married DeeDee, his wife of 44 years. He returned to Chicago to attend the Chicago Medical School, followed by internship and residency in Internal Medicine at UCLA/Wadswroth VA. He was Chief Resident in Medicine his last year. Fellowship in Hematology and Medical Oncology was completed at UCSD/La Jolla VA in 1975, and he's lived and practiced in the Escondido-Poway area ever since.

      Dr. Just has been Chair of the Investigational Review Board at Palomar-Pomerado Health System for 18 years. He has been expanding his research interests and is Director of the Research Institute Palomar-Pomerado Health System. But his favorite activity is walking with his dog, Simon, the Labradoodle.

      The Just's have two children and two grandchildren, with one more on the way. DeeDee has recently completed her Masters in Counseling Psychology, is working in bereavement counseling with local Hospices, and is a Tai Chi instructor. Dr. Just is an exercise freak and gym rat. To avoid a comb-over, he recently shaved his head.

      Dr. Just's Care Philosophy

      The Physicians and staff at California Cancer Associates for Research & Excellence Inc dedicated to one goal – providing the highest quality care for our patients. Our approach is based on our belief that patients do best when they receive comprehensive care with medical specialists and support staff working together on their behalf. We believe that our patients need to have access to the latest research, technologies, treatment programs and drug therapies. We believe that support groups, psychosocial counseling and complimentary programs can improve quality of life for many patients. And we believe that to beat cancer, we must treat more than the disease itself. We must treat the whole person by being responsive to how cancer impacts all aspects of their lives.
