Dr. Maria Valente is board-certified in medical oncology and practices at our Southpoint location. Originally from Michigan, Dr. Valente earned both her Bachelor of Science and Doctor of Medicine from the University of Michigan before setting her eyes on warmer climates and completing her residency at the University of Florida. She went on to complete her fellowship in hematology/oncology at Mayo Clinic in Jacksonville, before joining CSNF in 2007.

“It’s an exciting time to practice oncology,” she says, “because there are so many new treatments to offer patients.” Committed to treating the whole patient, Dr. Valente enjoys the collaborative approach CSNF takes through the use of social workers and registered dietitians. “I really try to work with my colleagues to ensure that all aspects of a patient’s needs are attended to; this builds a trust within our team that is unmatched at many other practices in our area.”

When not at work, Dr. Valente enjoys spending time with her three children, waterskiing and running.
