Raul H. Oyola, MD came to the United States in July 1992 from Colombia to continue his studies in medicine. Upon completion of his Fellowship at the University of Tennessee in Memphis in 2001, Dr. Oyola joined Northwest Georgia Oncology Centers, P.C. (NGOC) and served at its Austell Cancer Center for a decade before moving his practice to Marietta in 2011.

As a Principal Investigator of NGOC’s William S. Gibbons Cancer Research Institute, Dr. Oyola leads NGOC’s participation in national cancer research and clinical trials.  With a special interest in solid tumors, he is dedicated to finding a cancer cure and providing his patients with the most advanced cancer treatment available in Georgia.

Dr. Oyola is the past chairman WellStar Cancer Committee and WellStar Cobb Hospital Credentials Committee and served on the WellStar Oncology Cabinet.

“It’s important to offer cutting-edge clinical trials at NGOC since the majority of cancer patients are treated in a community setting.  At NGOC, patients have access to experimental drugs and the latest research treatment modalities. These innovative therapies can only be offered by a community practice like NGOC if there is great motivation, commitment, interest, and dedication from the treating physicians.”

Dr. Oyola delivers patient-centered cancer care at NGOC’s Marietta Cancer Center.
