Dr. Emily Tanzler is a Jacksonville native that practices at the Cancer Specialists of North Florida Fleming Island location. Dr. Tanzler finished her residency training at the University of Florida in June 2014, and joined CSNF in August 2014. She is well trained in treating common tumors involving the brain with the accuracy and precision required for this disease site.

It is her goal to provide the care required to allow patients to have a quality of life during radiation therapy so that they are able to enjoy time with their loved ones and continue to live an active life. Another passion of Dr. Tanzler’s is treating patients with metastatic disease, in which certain individuals with a limited amount of disease sites can be treated with radiation therapy in five to 10 days. She also very much enjoys being a female oncologist.

I can relate to and am passionate about taking care of cancers which affect women, such as all stages of breast cancer, cervix cancer, and endometrial cancers. The diagnosis of these cancers can be devastating, and I am sympathetic to these fears and place an emphasis on treating not only the cancer but the whole patient during these stressful moments in life.

Dr. Tanzler is thrilled to return to Jacksonville to have the privilege of treating the individuals of the community. In her free time, she enjoys spending time with family, visiting the beautiful St. Johns River and Jacksonville Beaches, and taking road trips to explore Old Florida.
