NorthBay Healthcare has welcomed two radiation oncologists to the NorthBay Cancer Center team.
Stephen J.M. Banks, M.D. and David John Tate, M.D. have worked together for many years and bring a wealth of knowledge and experience. Both are board-certified by the American Board of Radiology.
Dr. Banks grew up in Connecticut and earned his medical degree from Stanford University where he also completed his residency training in radiation oncology. He sees patients with a variety of cancers but has a specialized interest in treating prostate cancer, having performed thousands of prostate seed implants. He has presented results at national meetings and in peer-reviewed journals.
Dr. Tate attended the University of Virginia, earning his medical degree in 1991. He completed his residency training in Radiation Oncology at Stanford University and joined the faculty as an Assistant Professor from 1995–99, where his clinical and research interests included treatment techniques such as stereotactic radiosurgery, brachytherapy and intensity modulated radiation therapy.
Both doctors said they are thrilled to join the NorthBay Cancer Center team.
“NorthBay Cancer Center staff and physicians are dedicated to providing the most advanced medicine and cutting- edge technology,” noted Dr. Banks. “The quality of the staff is fantastic.”
Dr. Tate agreed. “I am very happy to be part of a center that approaches cancer treatment in a multidisciplinary fashion and with the latest technology.”
