Dr. Gerber, a D Magazine Best Doctor, believes his role as a medical oncologist extends beyond administering chemotherapy to providing psychosocial support, including offering methods to cope with the stress and difficulties that can come with a lung cancer diagnosis. “Providing support throughout the process is a role that I cherish,” he says. “It is very important and rewarding for me.” In addition to patient care, Dr. Gerber is very active in lung cancer research, including designing and overseeing clinical trials based on scientific discoveries made at UT Southwestern. “In lung cancer, there are still many unanswered questions, which means there are many opportunities to make an impact on the disease,” he says.
