Shahid Waheed, M.D., FACP


Shahid Waheed, M.D., FACP, cares for patients at Lake Regional Cancer Center.

Dr. Waheed is board-certified in medical oncology and internal medicine. He cares for patients with colorectal cancer, lung cancer, breast cancer, lymphoma and other cancers.

“Oncology is not only a profession but a passion of mine,” Dr. Waheed said. “I am passionate about providing hope.”

Dr. Waheed said he was drawn to oncology because of the advances being made in cancer care.

“When I was choosing a subspecialty, I read an article that said out of 120 new drugs in development, 99 were in the field of oncology,” he said. “Oncology is the frontier of medicine.”

Dr. Waheed has worked on bone marrow research at Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center in Seattle, Washington. He also has performed stem cell transplants and worked on genetic and molecular research involved in treating cancer with immunotherapies and targeted drugs.

In caring for patients, Dr. Waheed takes time to explain their treatment options and to listen to their goals.

“Trust is important,” he said. “We have to develop a trust in patients that we will take care of them.”
