Patient Reviews Request Appointment
Joseph R. H. See, MD, is a medical oncologist and hematologist whose specializes in prostate cancer, testicular cancer, lung cancer, and colon cancer. He is a member of the Society of Hospital Medicine and the American Society of Clinical Oncology. He began his medical career as a hospitalist, caring for patients in the hospital. After shadowing an oncologist, he was amazed by the patient-doctor interaction — it was a deep and trusting relationship. This inspired Dr. See to become an oncologist. He was also influenced by his upbringing. He grew up surrounded by a family that embraced the philosophy of helping others and a love of science, so a medical career was a natural choice.
Dr. See is deeply empathetic with his patients and acts as an advocate of strength and hope for them. “Every day I listen and learn from patients,” said Dr. See. “Through these experiences, I have gained deeper knowledge and understanding of the evolution of the disease and the toll it takes on my patients. One of my favorite slogans is ‘fight on,’ and it has put my perspective on medicine into focus. I enjoy giving my patients hope and the courage to fight on.”
In his free time, Dr. See is highly involved in community activities, especially those that raise awareness of cancer prevention and treatments. He recently participated in the Springfield chapter of the American Cancer Society’s “Real Men Wear Pink” campaign, and was the top fundraiser locally, 9th in the state, and 66th out of approximately 4000 nationally. He also enjoys hanging out with his family, traveling, working out, playing the piano, martial arts, and eating.
