Physician Profile

Alan Cohler, MD
Radiation Oncologist

I have been at the Cancer Institute of New Jersey since 2005. I treat patients with lymphoma, melanoma and other skin cancers, as well patients with cancers of the head, neck, lungs and esophagus. Along with assistance from the multidisciplinary teams within the Melanoma and Soft Tissue Oncology Program, Neuro-Onocology Program, and Thoracic Oncology Program, I help patients navigate their radiation therapy options so that they can make an informed decision as to what is right for them.

Ever since completing my residency at Thomas Jefferson University Hospital, I have had a specialty interest in lymphomas, skin cancers and cancers of the central nervous system.

As a member of the lymphoma tumor study group I am part of a team of specialists, including surgeons, pathologists, and medical who meet weekly to plan the best treatment for individual patients with lymphoma. Each lymphoma tumor is different, and our treatment planning reflects this. 

I am also Board Certified by the American Board of Radiology (ABR).
