“Take care of every patient the same way I would want my family to be treated.”

— Dr. Soltes

Why do you practice oncology?

Dr. George Soltes went to the Baylor College of Medicine where he received training in diagnostic radiology. He came to the University of Washington for advanced fellowship training in vascular and interventional radiology. “I became a doctor when I realized I couldn’t make a living as an English major,” he says. When it comes to working with cancer patients, Dr. Soltes finds it “rewarding to watch patients get better and get on with their lives.” “In my lifetime, I hope to see more targeted treatments that treat the cancer with minimal systemic effects for the patient,” he says. Outside of work, Dr. Soltes likes to spend time running, hiking, climbing, reading, and hanging out with his kids.
