Radiation oncologist, Benjamin Fischer-Valuck, MD, has joined Springfield Clinic Cancer Center at HSHS St. John’s Hospital and Memorial Medical Center. Dr. Fischer-Valuck’s top areas of focus include prostate, stomach and lung cancers.

Dr. Fischer-Valuck completed his residency at Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis and his medical degree from Louisiana State University Medical Center School of Medicine in Shreveport, Louisiana.
