Medical center welcomes 2 oncologists

Two physicians recently joined the advanced medical team at Olympic Medical Cancer Center in Sequim. With the addition of Dr. Erin Nelli, medical oncologist, and Dr. Michael Shevach, radiation oncologist, the now five-member physician team is providing more extensive cancer care to those living on the North Olympic Peninsula.

Nelli recently completed her fellowship with University of South Florida's H. Lee Moffitt Cancer Center. She is board certified in internal medicine and board eligible in medical oncology. She said she is looking forward to the opportunity to utilize OMCC's affiliation with the Seattle Cancer Care Alliance while providing quality medical care in a rural setting.

Shevach has more than 20 years experience as a radiation oncologist and is board certified in radiation oncology. He is excited by the continuously evolving radiation technologies and available treatments for cancer, particularly in the treatment of prostate cancer.

Both doctors look forward to working closely with their patients.

"Our physicians at Olympic Medical Cancer Center strive to provide each of our patients with a positive, comfortable experience throughout cancer treatment," said Tara Lock, director of Olympic Medical Cancer Center. "Our team treats not only cancer; we care for the whole person."

In addition to the services offered locally, Olympic Medical Cancer Center's affiliation with the Seattle Cancer Care Alliance brings the resources of three well-respected institutions to the community: Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center, University of Washington Medicine, and Seattle Children's Hospital.

Through this partnership patients have access to clinical trials, offering them access to the latest cancer therapies before they become widely available.
