Melissa McShane, MD
I am a medical oncologist specializing in the treatment of breast cancer. I completed my fellowship here at Fox Chase and when it came time to decide where to begin my academic career, it was an easy decision to stay. Fox Chase provides what I believe to be an ideal environment for providing exceptional multidisciplinary cancer care. I was always drawn to a career in oncology for multiple reasons, but foremost was the unique patient-physician relationship. A cancer diagnosis is overwhelming and can often be difficult to navigate. I strive to journey alongside my patients helping them best navigate their cancer care while also focusing on their physical and mental needs. I want to help my patients feel supported in all aspects of their cancer care. Here at Fox Chase, I work side by side with surgical oncologists, radiation oncologists, and the palliative care team to provide each of my patients with a treatment plan tailored to their specific needs. I am able to provide my patients with both standard of care treatment as well as access to cutting edge treatments through clinical trial participation.
