“One of my favorite parts about being an oncologist is being there for my patients. This is one of the most difficult times of their lives and being able to support them through their diagnosis and their survivorship is very rewarding.”
Dr. Jodie Barr is board certified in internal medicine, hematology and oncology. She completed her undergraduate degree in chemistry at McNeese State University in Lake Charles, Louisiana and earned her medical degree from the Kansas City University of Medicine and Biosciences. Dr. Barr completed an internal medicine residency at Exempla Saint Joseph Hospital in Denver and an oncology/hematology fellowship at the University of Kansas Cancer Center in Westwood.

Her philosophy of care is to care for her patients as a whole person. Dr. Barr said she not only wants to take care of her patients through their cancer diagnosis, but through long term side effects that may be encountered with treatment and all other support her patients need along the way.
