Gregory Friess, DO

“I believe there is a dream in the heart of each oncologist to give every cancer patient the best life possible, whether fifty days or fifty years. In the brain of a good oncologist is the knowledge and means to make it happen.”
Greg Friess, D.O., brings his patients more than three decades of experience in fighting cancer. He is a founding partner of The Center for Cancer and Blood Disorders. He has seen tremendous progress in cancer treatment and firmly believes in aggressively using every weapon available including chemotherapy, radiation therapy, immunotherapy, hormonal therapy, and biological therapy. His goal is a team approach, to provide every patient with an opportunity for a cure and the highest quality of life.
