Elizabeth Guancial, MD

Medical Oncologist
URMC Wilmot Cancer Institute

I am a medical oncologist, and my area of expertise is breast cancers, genitourinary cancers with bladder cancer as a special interest. My research focuses on studying how and why bladder cancers develop, discovering new treatments for bladder cancer, and identifying ways to predict how well individual cancers will respond to treatment. I believe in a multidisciplinary and collaborative approach to personalized care where I strive to educate my patients and their families about their disease and treatment options in order to create a management plan that addresses their needs and goals. Oncology is a challenging and rewarding specialty that, at its best, combines science and art. Successful practice requires understanding the most recent scientific advances, translating them into clinical care, and effectively communicating with patients and their families.
