      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. Reece says...

      I became a radiation oncologist because I liked the combination of direct patient care and using advanced technology to treat complex problems. I went to West Point for my undergraduate degree in engineering. I then went to the Uniformed Services University Medical School and spend 20 years after that as a doctor in the Army. I did both Internal Medicine and Radiation Oncology residency training at Walter Reed Army Medical Center and the National Cancer Institute. I am board certified in Radiation Oncology since 1996. My prior training in Internal Medicine gives me a broad perspective on patient care, such that I better understand the integration of radiation treatments with everything else that a patient is going through. The highlight of my day is being able to help someone. I enjoy explaining things in a practical way that is easily understandable. I am highly trained and proud of our practice at Overlake in providing all aspects of radiation treatment including all the newer ways of therapy such as intensity modulated radiation, stereotactic radiation, and brachytherapy.

      Dr. Reece's Care Philosophy

      Before I sit down to see a patient, I always research their specific case in detail to understand the testing and work up. I review the radiographic, lab and pathology testing to make sure that I have all the facts. Having the background medical knowledge on your case then allows me to listen to your specific symptoms, needs and concerns when we meet. I am then best able to provide you with a sound and comprehensive recommendation regarding the need or not for radiation therapy. I want the patient visit to be calm, friendly, comforting, easy to understand and timely. I don't use medical terms that are hard to understand. My promise is to treat you with dignity, compassion and respect. Cancer is a word that is hard to say, but we have a treatment that is very effective and I have devoted my life's work to helping you get well.
