About Dr. Tomlinson

While I enjoy the complexity and challenges of oncology, it is the close collaborative relationships with patients that I find most meaningful in my career. I live near Hickory with my husband and four children and enjoy cooking, golfing, and boating.

Radiation oncology is an exciting field of medicine because it involves the use of technology that is constantly evolving in order to improve patient outcomes and quality of life.
