As part of our quality assurance program at Mercy Cancer Center staff members follow rigorous guidelines to check and evaluate radiation equipment on a daily basis.

Dr. Albin Gonzalez, chief medical physicist, implements the radiation safety protocols. He also provides oversight to staff members who calculate and deliver the correct dosage provided by the radiation oncologists. Dr. Gonzalez received his doctoral degree in Medical Physics from Vanderbilt University and is board certified to practice Therapeutic Radiologic Physics by the American Board of Radiology.

“When patients come to Mercy Cancer Center for their cancer therapy,” says Dr. Gonzalez, “they can rest assured that all the safety checks are in place. Our patients can stay close to home and receive the best treatments available today.”
