Ryan Engel, DO

Specialties: Hematology/Oncology, Medical Oncology
"I decided to practice oncology because it encompasses all other specialties and involves supporting patients on multiple facets of care. Having had a family member with cancer, I understand the needs of both the patients and their families and that a diagnosis can take a physical and emotional toll on all involved. My goal as an oncologist is to be caring, approachable and dependable. I feel a sense of honor participating in patients' lives. While following standard, evidence based, treatment approaches, I individualize care based on the needs of each patient. Ultimately, I strive to treat all those as if I am taking care of my own family."

The doctor is very confident and competent, and when he is not sure of something, consults with other professionals.

Dr. Engel is an amazing physician. I feel blessed to have been referred to him when I was diagnosed with cancer. His compassion, patience and concern for his patients gives you the confidence and support you need to navigate this journey. He ALWAYS takes as much time as needed to explain things and makes himself available if you have any questions or concerns. He is smart and gives you his best all the time. Most importantly, he is just an exceptional human being. I can't imagine going through something like this without him.

Two thumbs up to entire staff.

Dr. Engle takes the time to cover all areas of my treatment. He may "run" late for the scheduled appointment at times but that happens because he will not rush the person. He is a great doctor -

Dr Engel went above and beyond to make me feel comfortable. He brought me to the infusion room, got me a warm blanket, came back to check and make sure I didn't have a reaction, and brought me snacks. I've seen a lot of doctors and he is by far my favorite.
