Doctor David Bloom is a Florida native who received his Bachelor of Science degree from the University of Florida. He went on to earn his Ph.D. in Pharmacology at Baylor College of Medicine in Houston, TX, focusing on cancer research. Because of his desire to continue his work in the field of oncology, he returned to the University of Florida to attend medical school. Following medical school, Dr. Bloom completed an internship in internal medicine at the University of Florida and was awarded the Excellence in Teaching Award. Dr. Bloom completed residency training in Radiation Oncology at University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center in Dallas, where he served as Chief Resident.
Dr. Bloom has conducted extensive cancer research which has been published in peer reviewed scientific journals. He has trained under one of the world experts in stereotactic ablative radiotherapy (SABR or SBRT), a newer technique which safely delivers higher doses of radiation in fewer treatments. This can be more effective for certain cancers, and is more convenient for patients. Along with all of Dr. Bloom’s achievements, he comes to Wellspring and our local area with a passion for patient centered care and delivering the most effective radiation therapy for cancer treatment.
