Dr. Apar Gupta is a board-certified radiation oncologist with expertise in a wide variety of cancer types, including head and neck, brain, thoracic, sarcoma, skin, gastrointestinal, and genitourinary cancers. Originally from New Jersey, he earned his BA/MD at Boston University’s accelerated seven-year medical program and completed his residency in radiation oncology at the Rutgers Cancer Institute of New Jersey. He then went on to build his career as an attending physician at Columbia University Medical Center in New York, serving as the lead radiation oncologist for the Head & Neck service. He joined Arizona Center for Cancer Care in 2022.
He additionally earned his MBA as part of the joint MD/MBA program at Boston University and serves on the American Society for Radiation Oncology’s Payer Relations Committee. As part of this effort, his goal is to ensure that insurance companies are not inappropriately denying radiation treatment options to patients. He has also published his research as a lead author in top-ranking cancer journals including the Journal of Clinical Oncology and the International Journal of Radiation Oncology, Biology, Physics, in addition to presenting his findings at national and international conferences.
Dr. Gupta knows that every patient and every cancer is unique, and a core component of his philosophy is to provide a personalized treatment plan that best fits their needs, which leads to better outcomes, faster responses, and fewer side effects. Further, he prioritizes patient education and communication, to ensure patients are always in charge of their care and an equal member of the treatment team.
In his free time, he enjoys spending time with his wife Megana, who is an Emergency Medicine physician, and with their golden retriever, Indy. He loves all things outdoors – hiking, skiing, golfing, tennis (and more recently pickleball), and traveling around the world.
