Oncology

The oncology service at Affiliated Veterinary Specialists is led by Dr. Teresa Goodson.  She is a Board-Certified Internal Medicine Specialist with extensive training and experience in the field of medical oncology.  She has been treating dogs and cats with cancer for 15 years in the Orlando area.  Her training in internal medicine enables her to evaluate your whole pet in order to recognize and treat their medical needs, beyond their cancer diagnosis.  Dr. Goodson works closely with many services at AVS, including a Board-Certified Radiologist who uses x-rays, ultrasound, CT, and MRI scans to thoroughly evaluate the extent of a patient’s cancer.  The team of Board-Certified Surgeons are frequently included in her patients’ care when tumors require surgical intervention.  Dr. Goodson embraces integrated medical options and encourages her patients to be treated in conjunction with Dr. Freeman, our Certified Veterinary Acupuncturist.
