"Dr. Brian Lawenda is an exceptional radiation oncologist and importantly he incorporates the field of integrative oncology within his practice. Dr. Lawenda is the ideal physician to provide complete care to patients incorporating evidence-based integrative oncology treatments alongside conventional care to improve outcomes."
--Lorenzo Cohen, Ph.D. Professor and Director of the Integrative Medicine Program at The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center and Past President of the Society for Integrative Oncology
“Brian Lawenda is a rare synthesis of several areas of expertise. An oncologist specializing in radiation oncology, he is also an important name in Integrative Oncology research and clinical care. The recipient of many distinctions and awards for his work, Dr. Lawenda is a caring physician who understands not only optimal oncologic treatment, but also the application of complementary therapies to relieve symptoms associated with cancer and cancer treatment.”

“As an expert for over three decades in integrative cancer treatment, I’d say “it takes one to know one!” And, over the last 10 years, I have had the opportunity to collaborate with and “get to know one” — Dr. Brian Lawenda. He is an exceptional clinician, one who truly understands the complex interplay of mind-body-spirit with conventional cancer treatments, complementary therapies and an anti-cancer lifestyle."
--Keith I. Block, M.D. Block Center for Integrative Cancer Treatment
“Dr. Lawenda is a leading pioneer in integrative oncology. There are few radiation oncologists with Dr. Lawenda’s knowledge of, and respect for, integrative strategies of diet, dietary supplementation and lifestyle management. Dr. Lawenda goes well beyond simply acknowledging the value of integrative treatments; he implements these strategies into his care plans for patients. Integrative oncology is, in many ways, the future of oncology"
