Reed E. Cope, M.D. cares for patients at Lake Regional Cancer Center.
“I chose radiation oncology because it combines my loves for physics, medicine and people,” Dr. Cope said. “I strive to provide excellent care, to always offer a listening ear, to explain all of the medical tests and procedures as well as I can, and to seek to get to know each patient as a person. It is, of course, rewarding to be able to provide good news and share that a tumor has shrunk or a cancer appears to be cured, but it is also incredibly rewarding just to know that I have made a positive impact on someone’s journey through life.”
At Lake Regional Cancer Center, patients receive radiation therapy with a state-of-the-art linear accelerator. The equipment’s superior imaging enables very precise delivery, resulting in less radiation to healthy tissue. Plus, the equipment at Lake Regional Cancer Center has a mode of delivery — volumetric modulated arc therapy — that reduces the length of each treatment by as much as 50 percent or more. The quick delivery improves accuracy because patients are less likely to move during shorter treatments.
