Alex Coffman, MD

Alex was born in Salt Lake City, Utah, where he received his Bachelor of Science degree in Biology at the University of Utah, before completing medical school at the University of Vermont College of Medicine in Burlington, and ultimately a residency at Loma Linda University Medical Center in California. He found his calling after volunteering in a chemotherapy infusion room and a hospice care center in college, and then shadowing a Radiation Oncologist at the Huntsman Cancer Institute, especially inspired by the significant time the RO was able to spend with patients and families.

Alex is married and has two children, though his caring nature also extends to animals, including a month-long expedition to Trinidad and Tobago for leatherback turtle conservation. Now settled in Wisconsin, he enjoys running, hiking, playing soccer, attending concerts, card games, and building LEGO sets.

“Because cancer happens to an entire person—not just their body—I promise to listen, answer your questions, and skillfully deliver the treatment that’s right for you.”
