Summary

"The Alaska Cancer Treatment Center is unique and special in that our primary objective is to give our patients not just outstanding medical care, but an outstanding experience as they receive their medical care."
-Larry Daugherty, MD

Dr. Daugherty received his medical degree in 2007 from University of Utah School of Medicine. He completed a residency in Radiation Oncology at the Drexel University College of Medicine in Philadelphia.

Dr. Daugherty has held an assistant professorship at the Mayo Clinic. He is also the co-founder of Radiating Hope International, an organization that works on building cancer facilities in developing countries.

My most important job as a radiation oncologist is educating patients. I have many other important hats that I wear, but to me, that is the most important.

I enjoy being the doctor who will take the time to explain in plain English what a diagnosis means, what the treatment options are, etc. I also pride myself in the Golden Rule – I would want to know everything about my condition if I were diagnosed with cancer, even the answers to the sometimes difficult questions about prognosis.

I am the type of oncologist who will shoot you straight and not try to sugar coat anything..that is how I would want to be treated and so when a patient asks me a question that some doctors might be wishy-washy with an answer – they can expect the straight truth from me.
