Patient Reviews Request Appointment
Suzanne M. Partridge, MD, is a medical oncologist and hematologist who specializes in breast cancer, gynecologic cancers, melanoma, lung cancer, and hematology. She is a principal investigator for melanoma clinical trials at OHC.
Dr. Partridge chose to specialize in cancer care because she wanted to see change in treatments and outcomes. “I think I’ve seen it,” she says. “We used to give a lot more chemo than we do now because there have been advancements in the treatment of breast cancer. We use new targeted therapies that have really improved outcomes. And there are new clinical trials we participate in that are looking at immunotherapy.”
Compassion is Dr. Partridge’s guiding force. “I see my job as a reliever of suffering. I want my patients to understand the goals of care and the options for treatment early in the process, so we can incorporate what is most valuable to them while they go through their treatment.” Her treatment of patients and families was acknowledged when she was selected as a recipient of the Unsung Hero Award from Cancer Family Care.
In her free time, Dr. Partridge enjoys spending time with her family, hiking, volleyball, and baking.
