Dr. Cameron McLaren
I have lived in the Berwick area for around eight years now, and am looking forward to serving the community for many more to come. I am a general Medical Oncologist with particular interest in:
- Lung Cancers
- Gastrointestinal Cancers (Colorectal, Pancreatic, and Hepatobiliary)
- Genitourinary Cancers (Prostate, Renal, and Bladder)
- Breast Cancers
I completed most of my training at MonashHealth, and was the Chief Resident in 2015. I undertook advanced training in Oncology at Frankston Hospital, MonashHealth, and Peter MacCallum Cancer Centre. I am published in the areas of pancreatic cancer, and have presented at international conferences in the field of exercise and cancer. I also practise perioperative general medicine, and value communication skills in healthcare and early identification and symptom control in advanced cancer.
I see my communication skills as my greatest strength and believe in clear communication with patients, to front-line healthcare providers and to referrers. I see each consult as an opportunity to educate the patient about their disease to equip them with the knowledge to give them confidence in the treatment decisions we make together.
