Suprith Badarinath, MD
Dr. Suprith Badarinath is board certified in both oncology and hematology and practices at the Cancer Specialists of North Florida office at St. Vincent’s Medical Center in Riverside.
Born in New York, Dr. Badarinath grew up in New Jersey and enjoys traveling, spending time with family, and taking pictures.
Dr. Badarinath joined Cancer Specialists of North Florida in order to work in community oncology rather than academics because he did not want to restrict his practice to one specific cancer. By working in the community, he says he is “able to work with the full depth and breadth of cancer patients.”
Working with the clinical trials offered at Cancer Specialists of North Florida is an important way Dr. Badarinath combines his masters’ degree in clinical research with his desire to treat patients.
He chose Cancer Specialists of North Florida because the group works hard to be efficient with the nuts and bolts of delivering cancer care. “Our goal is to make the difficult process of cancer treatment smoother for the patients. This group is dedicated to remaining on the cutting edge with new treatments and involvement with clinical trials to help improve the state of the art,” he said.
The most important way to help patients, he says, is to “pay attention to the details that help get people through the day.”
“Although we have made substantial advances in the field, we still have a long way to go to improve outcomes in oncology. It is only through active clinical trials that we can take the next steps to improve the lives of people diagnosed with cancer. It is through these constant steps forward, that we will truly be able to make progress in cancer care,” he says.
