The center, which is located in the River North area of the city, offers patients in and around the Chicagoland vicinity convenient access to personalized cancer treatment closer to home.

As a radiation oncologist, Dr. Mehta’s goal is to build a relationship with his patients and offer standard-of-care and, when possible, advanced radiation therapies to treat their cancer while helping them reduce and manage potential side effects. “I take pride in offering personalized treatment options and helping patients live with a better quality of life."
Dr. Mehta believes it’s important to invest the time to get to know his patients, making sure to review and explain all their options. “I want my patients to be informed and have a thorough understanding of their care.”
