Advocate Radiation Oncology has established a new cancer treatment center in West Palm Beach. This is the practice’s second location on the east coast of Florida that will provide residents of the surrounding counties with access to world-class physicians and state-of-the-art cancer treatment technology.
Advocate features an experienced team of compassionate, board-certified radiation oncologists who treat patients using the most precise cancer-fighting machines on the market. The new cancer treatment center, located at 4832 Okeechobee Blvd., will be led by Dr. Georges Hobeika. Hobeika will be joining the Advocate team following many years of dedicated service to cancer patients across the United States, most recently at the Orlando Health Cancer Institute. After more than a decade in radiation oncology, Hobeika advocates an evidence-based approach that puts patients first. He is board certified and is fluent in English, French, Arabic and Spanish.
“Dr. Hobeika combines extensive cancer-treatment knowledge with a caring and warm personality. His ability to create customized treatment plans using this approach aligns with the guiding principles of our practice,” said Dr. Arie Dosoretz, managing partner at Advocate Radiation Oncology. “We are excited to welcome Dr. Hobeika and to offer these services to the patients of Florida’s east coast with the addition of our West Palm Beach location.”
Originally from Lebanon, Hobeika obtained his medical degree with honors at the Lebanese University in Beirut before coming to the U.S for a radiation oncology residency at the University of Miami. Hobeika served as the assistant professor of radiation oncology at University of Central Florida’s College of Medicine, as well as on the faculty at the Alabama College of Osteopathic Medicine.
Advocate patients have access to the latest Varian technology, including the Halcyon, Identify and TrueBeam radiotherapy systems, widely recognized as the most innovative cancer-fighting machines on the market. Advocate also operates locations in Port Charlotte, Fort Myers, Cape Coral, Bonita Springs, Bradenton and Naples on the west coast of Florida and Tamarac on the east coast. Physicians provide treatments for breast, prostate, lung, head, neck and other types of cancers. For more info., visit www.advocatero.com.
