Cancer patients seeing new doctors as veteran oncologists retire
Santa Cruz Sentinel

In the past year, Santa Cruz County has lost three longtime cancer specialists to retirement: Dr. Tal Pomeroy, Dr. Jennifer Choate and Dr. James Poth.

To fill the gap, local cancer specialists have recruited one full-time doctor and others to work part-time.

“We’re trying to make sure no one slips through the cracks,” said Dr. Michael Alexander, the county’s first board-certified oncologist.
