Dr. Ribeiro de Oliveira sees patients with all types of cancer and blood disorders.

Dr. Ribeiro de Oliveira had set out to be a marine biologist when he started college. When his niece was diagnosed with acute lymphoblastic leukemia at age 1 and died before age 3, he turned his focused to medicine. Inspired by his niece to become a cancer doctor, Dr. Ribeiro de Oliveira approaches each patient as though they are family.

Dr. Ribeiro de Oliveira balances traditional treatment with alternative treatment options. Each course of treatment is individualized and agreed upon with the patient based on their needed cancer care.

When away from the clinic, Dr. Ribeiro de Oliveira enjoys spending time with family. He is an avid cyclist and enjoys many other outdoor activities, including bird watching.
