Patient Reviews Request Appointment
Peter R. Fried, MD, is an OHC radiation oncologist who serves as the medical director of the CyberKnife program at The Urology Group. His special interests include brain tumors, head and neck cancer and prostate cancer. Dr. Fried was drawn to the field of radiation oncology due its continuous clinical and technological advancements. He cites genetics and immunotherapies as recent examples in cancer care that have allowed for a better understanding of the disease and better treatment outcomes. Dr. Fried is pleased to be a part of the OHC team because it has always been a leader in bringing new treatments and innovative technology to patients in the region.
“With cancer, everything is important. What might be a temporary pain, like a sore back, in another situation could be a critical symptom in cancer. As a result, if you are going to be a really good oncologist, you have to be incredibly focused.”
Dr. Fried also understands that exceptional cancer care isn’t limited to medical treatments. “I learned through personal experience that a great doctor must also be empathic and compassionate because cancer is more than just a procedure or treatment. I try to put myself in the patients’ shoes and try to understand everything they are going through. And then I do everything I can to help,” explained Dr. Fried.
In his free time, Dr. Fried likes to keep up with current events, spending time with family, and traveling.
