Dr. Nasfat Shehadeh is board certified in Hematology, Medical Oncology, Genetic Cancer Risk Assessment, and Internal Medicine. His clinical interests include GU/ GI oncology and head/neck cancer. Dr. Shehadeh has been voted a top doctor in medical oncology for years 2019-2022 by Charlotte Magazine.

He graduated from the medical school at Jordan University of Science and Technology in Irbid, Jordan with honors on the Dean’s list.

Before serving cancer patients in Charlotte, he was the medical director at Mercy Cancer Centers in Toledo and an Assistant Professor of Medicine at the University of Minnesota in Minneapolis.

In 2020, Dr. Shehadeh joined the oncology team at OSC. Having worked previously in a hospital-based cancer program, he has seen the vast difference of personalized care that can be obtained in an independent oncology practice.

He has overseen many clinical research trials in various cancer therapies, including immunotherapy, metastasized cellular structure, stem cell transplant, and blood disorders, to name a few.

He is a member of the American Society of Clinical Oncology, Community Oncology Alliance, and locally the Independent Physicians of the Carolinas.
