Dr. Douglas M Iddings has the following 2 specialties
- Surgical Oncology
Surgical oncologists play various roles in treating cancer. They can perform biopsies to determine if a tumor is cancerous or not. If it is, they’re trained to remove the tumor, tissue, and in some cases, all or part of an organ or bodily structure where the cancer has spread. In addition to removing cancer, they can perform any reconstructive surgeries that may be necessary.
Many surgical oncologists specialize in certain types of cancer, such as liver, lung or breast. Don’t be afraid to ask them what they have the most experience treating. When looking for a doctor, it’s important to know that general surgeons are also qualified to perform many of the same surgeries. However, surgical oncologists have specific training in recognizing and treating cancer, which some patients prefer.

I was told by my 3 previous Dr. " there is nothing more we can do, go home and enjoy your life". I have neuro endocrine tumors Stage 4. After being admitted to EC, Dr Iddings was called in. I had a bowel obstruction. While he saw many tumors, he fixed the problem and removed all the tumors my local Hospital did not want to tackle. I wish I know about him 3 years ago. After surgery I felt the death cloud had lifted. I feel so positive now. It was a big surgery about 8" incision right down the middle. Hardly any pain at all! No pain meds to take at home, I feel great. I'm 4 weeks out of surgery as of this writing, but I was in my jeans and shopping and feeling just fine the week after! Office staff is wonder as well.
Dr. Iddings removed a large area from my temple and replaced it with a skin graft about the size of a golf ball. It has healed incredibly well and is almost unnoticeable after8 months. I am cancer free and was able to ring his beautiful brass bell. Having a diagnosis of cancer is a frightening and lonely experience and I feel grateful to have had dr. Iddings as my doctor thru this not only is he highly skilled but more importantly he was kind and very uplifting and I felt like he was my partner looking out for me throu out the treatment. He took all the time nessary to answer all my questions so that I understood squarely where is was at and what to expect. This applies to my experience with dr iddings- " people don't care how much you know until they know how much you care". It is obvious to me that dr. Iddings cares much for his patients and delivers his best every day to their treatment. Thank you dr.iddings for your caring for me.
My mother received excellent care from Dr. Iddings. He is extremely attentive to the needs of his patients as well as the needs of the family. He was sensitive to the needs of my hearing impaired father and displayed incredible patience when asked to repeat himself several times. Dr. Iddings understands and respects the wishes of his patients. His simplification of complex medical terms was very helpful. It is obvious that he truly cares for and has empathy for those he meets and cares for. I highly recommend his services.
