Dr. Charbel Ishak, Chairman and Radiation Safety Officer, Radiology, is taking an important leadership role in advancing the highest level of Interventional and Diagnostic Radiology services for patients.

These procedures include biopsies and interventions related to chest, gastrointestinal, oncology, and vascular diseases, as well as women’s health, dialysis access, and pain management, among numerous other areas. “The range of conditions that can be treated through Interventional Radiology is continually expanding and represents an excellent and cost effective treatment approach for non-surgical candidates,” stated Dr. Ishak.
