RETIREMENT: DR M A Coccia-Portugal

The time has come for Dr MA Coccia-Portugal, practitioner in Medical Oncology, to “slow-down”. After more than 40 years of dedication to the care of cancer patients in our country she has decided to pass on her knowledge to a junior colleague.

Dr Coccia-Portugal runs a practice of 600 plus patients and is the Principal Clinical Investigator in multiple international trials. Currently, more than 85% of her patients are breast cancer patients, managed by a multidisciplinary team in order to maintain up-to-date international standards of care. The practice staffs well trained oncology nurses, a clinical trial data manager and administrative staff.

Dr Coccia-Portugal is looking for a young oncologist to share in her practice and her knowledge, with the intent to ultimately take over her patients after retirement.
