    Jeff Burkeen, MD, MS, is Board Certified in Radiation Oncology and has maintained his certification through the American Board of Radiology. He sees patients at the Eisenhower Lucy Curci Cancer Center in Rancho Mirage. 

    After earning a Master of Science in Biology from the University of Texas A&M University, College Station, TX, he then earned his medical degree at Texas A&M University. During medical school, Dr. Burkeen also participated in the Medical Research Scholars Program – National Cancer Institute/Radiation Oncology Branch at the National Institute of Science in Bethesda, MD. He then completed an internal medicine preliminary year at Tulane University Hospital, New Orleans, LA, before heading West to complete a Radiation Oncology residency at the University of California, San Diego where he served as Chief Resident.

    Dr. Burkeen was always on the path to become a physician. His mother is a nurse practitioner exposing him to many medicine-related conversations growing up at home and while volunteering at a local hospital in junior high school and high school. Together with his aptitude for science, becoming a doctor was always his goal. “I specialized in radiation oncology because it is a great mixture of science and allows me to have a patient-facing practice,” states Dr. Burkeen. “I gain great satisfaction in meeting patients at a very difficult time in their lives and seeing how their inner strength and strength and encouragement from their loved ones play a part in their treatment and healing.”

    Dr. Burkeen focuses on patient-centered care, desiring to understand how his patients are feeling, what their concerns are about treatment, and answering any questions they may have. “I usually see patients frequently during an intense period of time in their lives and it is imperative that they have confidence and trust in me as well as being heard and understood,” reflects Dr. Burkeen.
