Adam Dickler MD

Radiation Oncologist

  • "Dr. Dickler is very good at treating prostate issues. His radiology approach to my prostate cancer was handled with expertise by both him and all his staff. It was the best option for me, and it essentially eliminated my cancer. Dr. Dickler has been excellent at followup since then, and a great communicator when discussing the ongoing plan for me. I would absolutely recommend him to anyone needing treatment for a prostate issue."
