Oncology Expert Witness

An Oncology expert witness is an Oncologist who testifies on the diagnosis, treatment, and prognosis of breast cancer, colon cancer, and other tumors.  Oncology is a branch of medicine concerned with the study and treatment of tumors. Tumors, commonly referred to as cancer, are one of the most common causes of death in the United States. Basic oncologic subspecialties include Pediatric Oncology, Radiation Oncology, Neuro-Oncology, Surgical Oncology, Dermatologic Oncology, and Gynecologic Oncology. Some Oncologists also specialize within their field and develop expertise in specific areas such as breast cancer, head & neck tumors, leukemia, lymphoma, and multiple myeloma.  A carefully selected Oncology expert witness may address any of these specialized areas.

Litigation in Oncology often arises from allegations of missed or delayed diagnosis, commonly resulting in further complications or death. Consequently, an Oncology expert witness evaluates both standard of care and issues of causation.
