We welcomed Mervat Saleh, MD, to the PeaceHealth St. Joseph Cancer Center team of providers in 2019. Dr. Saleh has special medical interests in genitourinary malignancies, melanoma and breast cancers.
Dr. Saleh sees herself as a collaborative partner with her patients. “It’s important to me that my patients feel taken care of. I take the time to address their questions and concerns—as well as those of their family members—and explain their diagnosis and treatment options,” she said. “My goal is to help patients understand the whole picture to make decisions about their care.”
Dr. Saleh is interested in clinical research and is an advocate for enrolling patients in relevant clinical trials. During her fellowship, she participated in phase II clinical trials in papillary kidney cancer and breast cancer treatments of the African American population.
“I believe cancer patients need to be treated as a whole to help them through their cancer journey. My mission is to provide my patients with the most advanced care available," she said.
Dr. Saleh is fluent in Arabic. Outside of the clinical setting, she enjoys running, cooking and spending time with her daughter and husband.
