Dr. Zewdu Lissanu, a board certified medical oncologist, has joined the active medical staff at Taylor Regional Hospital.
Lissanu is available Monday through Friday at the James Graham Brown Cancer Center at Taylor Regional Hospital.
"This is a wonderful addition to our already outstanding cancer center," says Jane Wheatley, CEO. "Dr. Lissanu is a very caring physician who focuses on the needs of the patient as his primary concern. The addition of Dr. Lissanu as a full time medical oncologist at TRH enables us to better meet the needs of our patients."
