  • Monitoring and assessment of patient well-being

Self Regional’s Cancer Center offers comprehensive cancer care to residents of the Lakelands region, and includes the latest treatments in medical oncology and radiation oncology. Medical oncology is led by cancer specialists Brian Hunis, M.D.; Joanna Sadurski, M.D.; and Elena Vician, M.D.

“For our patients and their families, this certification demonstrates our commitment to adhering to the highest standards of clinical care, as recognized by the American Society of Clinical Oncology,” said Dr. Hunis, who also serves as director of Medical Oncology and an assistant clinical professor for the Medical University of South Carolina.
