Dr. Eyad Abu-Isa received his undergraduate degree at the University of Michigan College of Engineering, graduating with top honors in chemical engineering. He then went to University of Michigan Medical School and graduated with honors in 2006. He did both his internship in internal medicine and radiation oncology residency at University of Michigan, serving as chief resident in radiation oncology in 2010-2011.
Dr. Abu-Isa focuses most of his time on patient care and practices at Providence Cancer Center in Southfield and Assarian Cancer Center in Novi. He enjoys treating all disease sites and has been researching the role of high activity low dose rate brachytherapy in the setting of recurrent and unresectable cancers.
Outside of the clinic, Dr. Abu-Isa enjoys spending time with his family and racing in endurance events. He has completed four full-distance Ironman events, achieved All World status, and completed 15+marathons.
