Dr. Suprith Badarinath is board certified in both medical oncology and hematology, and practices at the Cancer Specialists of North Florida St. Vincent’s location in Riverside. He began practicing medicine in 2000, when he joined CSNF. Born in New York, Dr. Badarinath grew up in central New Jersey and enjoys traveling, spending time with family, and photography.
Dr. Badarinath joined Cancer Specialists of North Florida in order to work in community oncology rather than academics, because he did not want to restrict his practice to one specific cancer. By working in the community, he says he is able to work with the full depth and breadth of cancer patients. The most important way to help patients, he says, is to pay attention to the details that help get people through the day.
Working with the clinical trials offered at Cancer Specialists of North Florida is an important way Dr. Badarinath combines his master’s degree in clinical research with his desire to treat patients. Although we have made substantial advances in the field, we still have a long way to go to improve outcomes in oncology. It is only through active clinical trials that we can take the next steps to improve the lives of people diagnosed with cancer. “It is through these constant steps forward that we will truly be able to make progress in cancer care,” he says.
Dr. Badarinath most enjoys the teamwork at CSNF. He likes the spirit that everyone can work together to achieve the same goal.
