John M. Holland M.D.

Head and neck tumors and thoracic oncology are Dr. Holland’s special areas of interest. He earned his medical degree in 1989 at Washington University in St. Louis. He went on to complete his residency in radiation oncology at the University of California, San Francisco in 1994. During that year, Dr. Holland became board certified in radiation oncology.
