Valley View is pleased to announce that Stephen Mayer, MD, PhD, FACP, oncologist and hematologist with the Calaway • Young Cancer Center at Valley View, is expanding his services and providing cancer care at Memorial Regional Health in Craig, Colorado. Dr. Mayer will be available for appointments at Memorial Regional Health on the first Wednesday of every month.
Board-certified in medical oncology and internal medicine, Dr. Mayer became a physician as a second career following 15 years as a molecular biologist and credits the transition to wanting to help patients through the journey of a cancer diagnosis. His areas of focus include gastrointestinal, prostate, bladder, kidney, gynecologic, melanoma, neuroendocrine, breast, lung, hematologic malignancies and benign hematology.
“Having cancer is complex and I want to be able to help people through that,” stated Dr. Mayer. “One of the main reasons I became an oncologist is because I appreciate the depth of the relationships that I form with patients who have serious, scary and often life-threatening illnesses. I am grateful to have the opportunity to provide cancer care to the Craig community and continue to help my patients make informed decisions about their treatment options.”
As the leading cancer treatment facility in the region, the Calaway • Young Cancer Center is home to a nationally-renowned, highly-skilled, innovative and respected team of providers with accreditations for the most advanced technologies and cancer treatment options in the country.
