Oncology and Hematology

Oncology, Medical

Medical oncologist and hematologist Ryan Roop, MD, joined the team at Northwest Oncology and Hematology at Kalispell Regional Healthcare in September 2013. The Phoenix, Arizona, native followed his baccalaureate in biochemistry with medical schooling at the University of Arizona in Tucson. He realized early on in medical school that he wanted to be an oncologist. He felt deeply enriched when helping others through a difficult time, and enjoyed the challenge of treating a complex disease. During his internal medicine residency at Washington University in St. Louis, Missouri, positive interactions with cancer patients solidified this direction. “It is often a very trying time when someone is diagnosed with cancer,” he said. “I believe they need a physician who is willing to show compassion as well as deliver the best possible treatment.” Dr. Roop was chosen for a fellowship in hematology and oncology at Washington University, where he also served as chief fellow. He conducted clinical research in breast cancer and lymphoma, gaining insight into how new treatments are developed. He is drawn to practicing in a community setting where he can focus on patient care and treat many types of cancer. His practice with Northwest Oncology and Hematology began immediately after his fellowship. Dr. Roop and his wife, a pharmacist, have one daughter, born in 2012. In their free time, they pursue a number of outdoor activities – he particularly is interested in downhill skiing, and she likes hiking and backpacking.
