Dr. Rochelle L Ringer 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.
- Breast Cancer

My wife was originally referred to Dr. Ringer after noticing a marble-like mass in her breast. It seemed like in the blink of an eye we had received the diagnosis that it was indeed cancer (IDC triple neg.) and were sitting in an office discussing options and treatment plans. My wife and I weren't familiar with any type of breast cancer or what the diagnosis actually meant (at 32 you don't tend to worry about cancer), but Dr. Ringer broke down every medical term and treated my wife with compassion like I had never seen from a physician, especially since they literally just met two days prior. We knew that we were now facing a fight that we couldn't lose, that my wife was fighting for her life. Dr. Ringer and staff coached us on what was available for assisting us with this fight. Dr. Ringer followed her care all the way, speaking with the oncologists, plastic surgeons, and calling to ensure everything was going ok; both physically and emotionally. Dr. Ringer completed the double mastectomy surgery with great success. We can never repay Dr. Ringer for the care she provided to my wife and the advice she provided to me. I have seen a lot of horrible things in my life, being a former active duty Marine and overseas JSOC contractor, but nothing compares to what I watched my wife go through. I couldn't imagine facing this without Dr. Ringer and her group of physicians.
