About Lauren Elreda, M.D.
Cancer is a part of medicine that is complex and has many unanswered questions. As time goes on, the field of oncology continues to dramatically change in ways that I am fortunate to be a part of. My personal interest is in taking care of patients with gastrointestinal cancers. With the advent of more personalized medicine, I am able to offer patients more individualized and targeted therapies. The goals of these therapies are to help patients live longer and provide a better quality of life. It is important to inform patients of all aspects of their disease so they are able to be an active participant in their care. I am also involved in clinical research with hopes to advance our current standard treatments. I work alongside our surgeons, radiation oncologists, radiologists, gastroenterologists, interventional radiologists, medical oncologists and other sub specialists to ensure that patients are provided with a comprehensive assessment and plan of care. I want patients to know that I, along with my team, will take all the steps to ensure that they receive the care they deserve.
