Cancer Specialists of North Florida


Small enough to offer groundbreaking therapies. Large enough to offer the attention others promise

Cancer Specialists of North Florida is dedicated to providing the best care possible for each and every one of our patients. We approach the treatment of patients with cancer and blood disorders in a uniquely integrated approach that can’t be found anywhere else on the First Coast.

CSNF is the largest, private, physician-owned oncology practice in the region, with 30 physicians and eleven clinic locations. Our services include medical oncology, radiation oncology, gynecologic oncology, hematology, PET/CT imaging, diagnostic and pathology labs, social work, nutritional counseling, specialty pharmacy and access to cutting-edge medical therapies through clinical research. 

2014 was an exciting year for our practice as we added two new specialties: radiation oncology and gynecologic oncology. With these additions, we added two new clinic locations, one off John Turner Butler (JTB) highway at the Belfort exit and the second in the growing community of Fleming Island; both centers allow each patient to receive all services in one location. We also happily welcomed four new physicians: Dr. Shazia Bashir, a gynecologic oncologist, Drs. Emily Tanzler and Waseet Vance, radiation oncologists, and Dr. Jason Starr, a medical oncologist and hematologist.

This year we grow again with five new physician joining CSNF: two radiation oncologists, Dr. Jessica Bahari-Kashani and Dr. Christine Bang and three medical oncologists/hematologists, Dr. Ilicia Shugarman, Dr. Hassan Hassan, and Dr. Susmitha Vaka.

All of our board-certified physicians and highly trained staff are committed to providing patients with state-of-the-art care in their neighborhood. Our physicians take the time to ensure that patients have the knowledge, compassion, and support they deserve.
