Please join us in welcoming Radhika Gali, MD to the team of physicians at Hematology Oncology Associates.
Dr. Gali’s interest in medicine began when she was young. Encouraged by her parents, Radhika aspired to become the first physician in her family. Her journey was shaped by diverse experiences, including studying medicine in a foreign country. She adopted a “want to learn” mindset which continues to this day.
Significant progress has been made in the field of oncology, especially in the availability of personalized treatment plans. This has only intensified Dr. Gali’s motivation to practice oncology: “I want fight this battle on the front lines.”
A cancer diagnosis and treatment can be emotionally and physically challenging. The level of trust that a cancer patient places in their physician is immense. It takes a considerable amount of self-assurance to provide patients with the empathy and education they require.
“Receiving a cancer diagnosis is one of the most frightening and devastating experiences anyone can face,” says Dr. Gali. “I strive to provide compassionate, personalized care that addresses each patient’s individual needs.” She also recognizes the importance of clear and effective communication with patients and their families. “I work hard to ensure that everyone fully understands the diagnosis, treatment options, and potential outcomes.”
Being a physician, mother, and wife, Dr. Gali was seeking to become part of a community of healthcare providers that offered a supportive environment, and she found just that at Hematology Oncology Associates. After living and working in the hustle and bustle of New York City for seven years, Radhika and her husband fell in love with the Rogue Valley upon their first visit. “The natural beauty of Oregon, the welcoming community, and convenient lifestyle are unparalleled. It is the ideal location to raise our children, pursue our careers, and lay down roots.”
