BIOGRAPHY

Peter Mathern, MD is a board-certified oncologist at the Flagstaff location. Dr. Mathern received his medical degree from Charles University Medical School where he graduated summa cum laude. He completed an internship at the General Hospital of Bratislava County before completing a research fellowship in rheumatology at the National Institutes of Health and a residency in internal medicine at Vanderbilt University Medical Center. In 2004, he completed an additional fellowship in oncology and hematology at Boston University Medical Center.

Dr. Mathern treats all solid tumor cancers, as well as lymphoma. He is specialized in performing bone marrow biopsies.

Dr. Mathern began practicing medicine in Arizona in 1996. He has extensive experience in a variety of healthcare settings, including urgent care and hospital services. He has served on the medical executive committees of the Mohave Valley Hospital and Medical Center and the Western Arizona Regional Medical Center.


PHILOSOPHY

I come from a family of physicians who encouraged me to pursue medicine to fulfill my passion for helping people. I was drawn to oncology because the research is constantly evolving in ways that allow us to make a significant impact on our patients’ lives. I am personally committed to driving greatness in cancer care, and I want my patients to know that they can trust me to remain abreast of the latest advancements and work with them to pursue the best outcome.
