Susan K. Montgomery,  MD  


Professional Statement

Dr. Montgomery is a native of the greater Seattle area: she was born and raised in Issaquah and went to Whitman College for her undergraduate studies. She decided to pursue a medical degree after a family member was diagnosed with cancer. She received her medical education at the University of Washington and was drawn early on to medical oncology as a subspecialty. "In oncology clinic, seeing the quality of the patient-doctor interaction, with its level of intensity, transparency and degree of compassion really impacted me, both as a person and as a physician." Having seen both sides of cancer care, both as a physician and as a family member of a patient, Dr. Montgomery understands the importance of patient-centered care and the team approach. "Providing excellent, state-of-the-art, individualized care really does 'take a village:' a multi-disciplinary team of providers, along with the patient him/herself, are paramount to providing the best possible care." In her free time, Dr. Montgomery enjoys staying active, outdoor adventures and spending time with family and friends.
