Dr. Jonathan W. Thompson

“I chose radiation oncology for a number of reasons.  First, the patients are so incredibly grateful for the care they receive during the difficult time surrounding their diagnosis. Radiation oncology also allowed me to apply my engineering background to what is arguably the most technical field in medicine and is constantly evolving.  I am blessed to be a part of OncoLogics which has some of the most caring and compassionate people I have ever met.  Our staff truly understands that cancer is much more than simply the diagnosis, and the care we provide goes far beyond what happens in the treatment room.”

Dr. Thompson is a Ruston native. His interests include head and neck cancers and radiosurgery. He is married to Audrey, a Lafayette native, and they have a son, William.
