Dr. Ross Okimoto is a medical oncologist who specializes in caring for adult patients with soft tissue and bone sarcomas (a type of malignant tumor). He works with a team of surgeons, radiation oncologists and pathologists to provide the best possible outcomes for his patients.
A physician-scientist, Okimoto conducts research in addition to providing care. The overarching goal of his laboratory-based investigations is to improve outcomes for cancer patients.
