"It’s an honor for me to help guide a patient through treatment, using the latest technology and instilling hope along the way," says Dr. Cole Steber, University Cancer & Blood Center.

University Cancer & Blood Center (UCBC), a leading oncology and hematology practice for Northeast Georgia, welcomes Dr. Cole Steber, a board-certified clinical and radiation oncologist. This continues UCBC’s tradition of enlisting best-in-class physicians to deliver the highest possible patient care.

Dr. Steber is now seeing patients at the UCBC Athens-Clarke County Radiation Oncology Clinic (220 Hawthorne Park, Athens). He joins UCBC’s expert team, specializing in the radiation therapy treatment of patients who have a wide variety of cancers. Like all of UCBC’s radiation oncologists, Dr. Steber works closely with medical oncologists, surgeons, and other doctors to coordinate the most appropriate care for each patient. Radiation therapy uses carefully targeted and regulated doses of high-energy radiation to kill cancer cells.

“Dr. Steber exemplifies all of the qualities we look for in a radiation oncologist,” says Dr. Petros G. Nikolinakos, Managing Partner and Director of Clinic Research. “He’s caring, intuitive, and highly skilled. We’re thrilled to have him on board, and he’s already making a difference in the lives of our patients.”

After earning his Doctor of Medicine degree from the University of Kentucky College of Medicine in Lexington, Ky., Dr. Steber completed his residency at the Wake Forest School of Medicine where he served as chief resident from 2020-2021. He is a member of the American Society for Radiation Oncology, American Society for Clinical Oncology, and American Board of Radiology.

“The passion I have for my work is personal,” says Dr. Steber. “My mother is a cancer survivor, and I know firsthand the toll this disease can take on a patient and their family. That’s why it’s an honor for me to help guide a patient through treatment, using the latest technology and instilling hope along the way.”
