Medical oncologist/hematologist joins Heartland Cancer Center

Dr. Audrik Perez Rodriguez, Medical Oncologist/Hematologist, recently started work at Heartland Cancer Center, joining Radiation Oncologists Dr. Perez-Tamayo and Dr. Ko in continuing to bring world-class cancer services and technology to southwestern Kansas.

Dr. Perez Rodriguez completed her fellowship at Roger Williams Medical Center in Providence, RI and her residency at Maimonides Medical Center in Brooklyn, NY. She is board certified by the American Board of Internal Medicine.

Dr. Perez Rodriguez is a member of the American Society of Hematology (ASH) and the American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO).

Dr. Perez Rodriguez said she is grateful to join the Heartland Cancer Center team and looks forward to working with experienced physicians, advanced providers, and staff where the focus is on rendering patients’ compassionate, innovative cancer treatment.

“Together, we try to achieve the best possible outcome for each one of our patients including maintaining and/or improving their quality of life in all stages,” she said. “I always tell my patients that they are not alone, whatever the situation may be. I want to be their advocate and educate them about possible options so we can make informed decisions regarding their care.”

Dr. Perez-Tamayo, President of Central Care, said western Kansas is fortunate to have Dr. Perez Rodriguez join the oncology team.

“With the exceptional training she received and her fluency in both English and Spanish, we will be able to provide every advantage in cancer care to the community,” Dr. Perez-Tamayo said. “Both medical and radiation oncology are available with the latest in technology and medications, right here in Garden City, and with our use of telemedicine, we are able to work with your primary physicians wherever you live. Dr. Perez Rodriguez is the perfect addition to our team of expert physicians.”
