John Siemon, MD
“What truly sets Gynecologic Oncology apart from other specialties, is the comprehensive care we provide for our patients. It is the only specialty where the physician performing the surgery is also the physician providing the short and long-term medical management. This allows us to build strong relationships with our patients over time and optimize patient outcomes based on our unique understanding of how the gynecologic disease process and treatment options affect all aspects of our patient’s health and wellbeing.“
