Board-Certified Veterinary Oncologists:

Lyndsay Kubicek, DVM, DACVR (Radiation Oncology)

Dr. Kubicek specializes in cancers treated with radiation therapy with an emphasis on maintaining good quality of life for
patients. Prior to joining Angell, Dr. Kubicek developed the radiation program at the University of Florida where she was a
clinical assistant professor and the University’s first radiation oncologist. Dr. Kubicek leads Angell’s radiation therapy
program. Angell’s radiation therapy options include palliative and definitive therapies using photon and electron beams. Dr.
Kubicek is an advocate of proactive pain control and has extensive training in intensity-modulated radiation therapy (IMRT)
and stereotactic radiosurgery (SRS). IMRT minimizes side effects by sculpting the radiation treatment beam to the exact
size and dimensions of the tumor. SRS delivers high doses of radiation using a precise beam to the site of the tumor. The
high dosage allows for fewer treatment sessions (3 or 4 instead of 18-20). Beyond the technology, Dr. Kubicek loves
working in oncology because of the relationships she builds with clients and patients. She also relishes Angell’s
interdisciplinary approach to helping patients.

patients and their families to provide the best possible care while attempting to maintain a good quality of life, by using a
multi-modality approach to cancer with chemotherapy, immunotherapy, radiation therapy and surgery, as well as palliative
options for pain relief. He enjoys spending time with his wife and daughter, 2 dogs (Mario & Olivia), and 2 cats
(Manolo & Felipe).
