Our expert physicians are leaders in their field and have pioneered many types of the most advanced breast, prostate, brain and lung radiotherapy techniques available today.
Dr. Luci Chen
Dr. Luci Chen is a partner at AZCCC as well as past Clinical Director of the Department of Radiation Oncology at Louis A. Weiss Memorial Hospital. She has also been awarded a Fellowship by the American Cancer Society for her clinical research in cancer care.
Dr. Robert Kuske
Dr. Kuske is a partner at AZCCC as well as the pioneer of breast brachytherapy, the five-day radiation therapy alternative for women with early stage breast cancer. External beam radiation therapy is safe and very effective, but can take six weeks of daily treatment. Breast brachytherapy, or partial breast irradiation (PBI), has been researched and tested by Dr. Kuske since 1991 as a treatment method after lumpectomy. He has advanced the techniques and technology, and championed the research.

Before relocating to Phoenix, Dr. Diane C. Recine practiced at and served as Director of Residency Programs for the Department of Radiation Oncology at Rush-Presbyterian-St. Luke’s Medical Center in Chicago. Dr. Recine's areas of clinical interest and specialization include the treatment of breast cancer, lymphomas, soft tissue sarcomas, gastrointestinal cancer, and head and neck cancer. She has specific interest and expertise in the use of intensity modulated radiation therapy (IMRT), stereotactic radiotherapy and image guided radiation therapy (IGRT).
Dr. Farley Yang
Dr. Farley Yang is a partner at AZCCC who has been member of the Scottsdale Healthcare Medical Staff for over 10 years. He was one of the first in Arizona to successfully use IMRT, and many of his patients have benefited from Stereotactic Radiosurgery procedures for both brain and body tumors (particularly lung cancer), which is able to deliver high doses of pin-point radiation to small cancers in less than one week.
