Top Doctors in Kansas City

Our Docs Are Tops!

At Kansas City Proton Institute, we are bringing the latest in cancer treatment to Kansas City. Besides being the only non-hospital-based proton radiation facility in the central United States, we also employ some amazing doctors dedicated to bringing their patients the best care possible. That means at KCPI, you’ll get not only cutting-edge technology but a commitment to true patient-centered care. KCPI is setting new standards of care for patients that not only focus on the medical side but aim to improve patient quality of life during and after treatment. Our doctors combine the best of both worlds – medical expertise plus a focus on the patient experience.

Meet Our Radiation Oncologists – Top Docs 2024

At Kansas City Proton Institute, we bring you the latest in cancer care but what really sets us apart is our team of dedicated professionals. That team includes two radiation oncologists, Kenon Qamar, MD, and Mark Thompson, MD whose dedication has earned them the honor of being named Top Doctors in Kansas City as published in Kansas City Magazine, January 2024. Kansas City Magazine adds:

“Our annual Top Doctors list is compiled by our partners at Castle Connolly, a national health care research and information company. The firm works with hundreds of thousands of physicians as well as academic medical centers, specialty hospitals and regional and community hospitals. Castle Connolly’s physician-led team of researchers follows a screening process to select top doctors on both the national and regional levels. Its online nominations process (nominations.castleconnolly.com) is open to all licensed physicians in America. They can nominate physicians in any medical specialty and in any part of the country, as well as indicate whether the nominated physician is, in their opinion, among the best in the region in their medical specialty or among the best in the nation in their medical specialty. Doctors do not and cannot pay to be selected and profiled as Castle Connolly Top Doctors.”

We would like to note that Dr. Qamar and Dr. Thompson have been awarded this honor in 2023 and 2024.

Experience and Expertise

Each of these doctors has over 25 years of experience treating all kinds of cancer. That means that every cancer treatment plan is underscored by their shared experiences and a deep understanding of the latest cancer research. Couple that with the latest medical technology and you’ve got a powerful ally in the fight against cancer.

Focus on Patient Care

At KCPI we strive to support our patients’ physical and emotional health. This dual-care model creates a supportive and nurturing environment throughout the patient treatment process. Choosing a facility for cancer care is a very important part of the cancer journey. The care facility becomes a part of the patient’s daily life. Interactions with the people at that facility can make a world of difference.

Proton Therapy Reduces Side Effects

Proton therapy is the perfect partner in the plan to make cancer care better for patients. Proton therapy is a form of radiation therapy that allows for precise targeting of tumors with minimal impact on surrounding healthy tissues. That means fewer side effects which creates an improved quality of life for patients both during and after treatment.

Convenient Cancer Care Facility

A cancer diagnosis is extremely stressful for patients both physically and emotionally. One of the big benefits for KCPI patients is the convenience it provides. Our non-hospital-based setting is easily accessible and less intimidating than a hospital setting. There are no large hospital complexes, no parking garages, and no big buildings to navigate. KCPI patients can access their treatments quickly and easily. This reduces patient stress thereby facilitating healing.

Setting New Standards for Patient Care

No wonder Healthy Kansas City Magazine said, “With its state-of-the-art technology, dedicated team of professionals, and commitment to patient-centered care, KCPI is changing the landscape of cancer treatment and setting new standards for patient care and quality of life during and after treatment.”

At KCPI we hope our innovative approach to cancer care creates an awareness in the community that there’s more to cancer care than medical expertise. While that part is the most critical, we must also treat the patient as a whole person, not just a physical body to be fixed. People are made up of much more than bones and blood. The emotional element is critical to healing. That’s what makes us human, after all.

Congratulations to our Top Docs – oncologists Kenon Qamar, MD, and Mark Thompson, MD. Together, with their guidance and wisdom, we strive to create the best cancer care facility anywhere! To learn more, visit KCPI.com.
