Nancy Sharma, MD (Medical Oncology, Hematology)
Growing up in a family of physicians, Dr. Sharma was attracted to the challenges and satisfaction of being a physician herself. Her work experience in hospice and the personal loss of her grandfather to cancer paved the path for her to become an oncologist. She received oncology training at the University of Iowa where she then remained as a faculty member for 2 years. During her 5 years at the University of Iowa, she specialized in neuroendocrine tumors and worked closely with pioneers in the field of peptide receptor radionuclide therapy, PRRT, with Lutathera.
When she moved to Seattle, she worked as an assistant professor at the University of Washington/Seattle Cancer Care Alliance. She has been a medical oncologist for several years working with cutting edge research and delivering the newest cancer treatments including immunotherapy and targeted therapies.
Dr. Sharma has more than 10 years of experience in treating neuroendocrine tumor patients. Swedish Cancer Institute is a one-of-its-kind center in the state of Washington, providing a multidisciplinary team for treating neuroendocrine tumor patients.
