Scientist: Tarah Ballinger, M.D.
Dr. Tarah Ballinger’s practice philosophy is to empower her patients to engage in a shared decision-making process with honest discussions at each step of treatment. She feels it is important to individualize care and to focus on the impact of cancer care on a patient as a whole person. Her clinical interests include high-risk and survivor breast oncology, particularly the role of physical activity and exercise. Aside from medicine, Dr. Ballinger enjoys spending time with her family and friends, running and cycling.
