WASEET VANCE, MD, DABR, FACRO

BIOGRAPHY

Dr. Waseet Vance is board-certified in radiation oncology and practices at our Fleming Island and Southpoint locations. Originally from the Northeast, Dr. Vance received his Bachelor of Arts in Economics from Canisius College in New York, before moving to Ohio to earn his Doctor of Medicine from Northeast Ohio Medical University. He completed his internship there before heading back to New York to complete his residency at New York-Presbyterian/Columbia University Medical Center.

During his residency, in addition to specialized training in various types of radiation oncology, Dr. Vance was awarded a scholarship to receive proton therapy training at MD Anderson Cancer Center in Texas. The recipient of awards from the American Society for Radiation Oncology, American Brachytherapy Society, Radiological Society of North America, and American College of Radiation Oncology, it is no surprise that Dr. Vance was one of the youngest ever to be inducted as a Fellow of the American College of Radiation Oncology.

Dr. Vance joined CSNF in 2014 as a founding member of the radiation oncology department. His belief in custom tailoring the latest cutting-edge therapies to each individual patient has significantly improved outcomes while minimizing side effects. “I know that the diagnosis of cancer is typically the most difficult challenge a person will have to face in their life, so I strive to work closely with them, in a warm, holistic, supportive, and patient-centered environment.  He says “I believe in going above and beyond for my patients to give them the absolute best chance of success”

When not at the office, Dr. Vance enjoys sports, the great outdoors, and spending time with his son and daughter.
