Treatment may be used alone or combined with other modalities such as chemotherapy or surgery for best treatment results.The Alpharetta Radiation Oncology team consists of nurses, radiation therapists, physics and administrative staff working alongside our team of board-certified radiation oncologists, exclusive to the Alpharetta Cancer Center.
