The Orlando Health Cancer Institute Oncology Suite St. Cloud just made it easier for cancer patients in the St. Cloud area to receive cancer infusions and treatments after opening their new office in the Orlando Health Medical Pavilion – St. Cloud, located on Budinger Avenue and 13th Street in St. Cloud.
Dr. Simi George, a board-certified medical oncologist at the Orlando Health Cancer Institute, who helps diagnose and treat all cancer types with a special expertise in gastrointestinal cancers, will head up the St. Cloud Office. Dr. George has already been helping cancer patients in need of oncology infusions/treatments at Orlando Health Medical Pavilion – Osceola, located at 1001 E. Osceola Pkwy in Kissimmee.
“We’re very excited to be here in St. Cloud at the new Orlando Health Cancer Institute Oncology Clinic and Infusion Center, where we’re able to see almost all cancer patients as well as those experiencing non-cancer blood issues, and provide complete cancer care, including cancer-related infusion, chemotherapy, chemo pills, IV iron infusions, and immunoglobulin infusions,” Dr. George shared with Positively Osceola. “Orlando Health has a great track record of providing state-of-the art cancer care in Orange County, and now for the first time they’re bringing it to Osceola County and St. Cloud, so I’m very excited to be part of that.”
Before joining Orlando Health, Dr. George was an attending hematologist/oncologist focusing on gastrointestinal malignancies with the Orlando VA Medical Center.
She is board certified in medical oncology and hematology by the American Board of Internal Medicine. Her professional memberships include the American Society of Clinical Oncology, American Society of Hematology, American College of Physicians and the American Medical Association.
Dr. George received her medical degree from SUNY Downstate College of Medicine in Brooklyn, New York, after completing a bachelor of science at Cornell University. Her residency in internal medicine was completed at the University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey-Robert Wood Johnson Medical School in New Brunswick. She performed a fellowship in hematology/oncology at Hofstra North Shore-Long Island Jewish School of Medicine in New Hyde Park, New York.
It can be challenging for cancer patients who are undergoing cancer treatments to travel to Orlando, or even to the Kissimmee area if they live in the St. Cloud community. Orlando Health Cancer Institute Oncology Clinic and Infusion Center will be a great resource for those patients, as well as for patients who speak Spanish. Orlando Heath expects to care for about 20 patients a day in their new Orlando Health Cancer Institute Oncology Suite St. Cloud.
