Children's Hospital at Erlanger
Enhancing the Team
When Dr. Joseph Oros graduated from his fellowship in the summer of 2022, he set out to find an employer that would provide him access to a variety of patients and pathologies, all the while being a part of a top-notch team. A pediatric radiologist, Dr. Oros has found his way to Children’s Hospital at Erlanger where he is just one of several radiologists who are able to offer comprehensive care and assist in diagnosing disorders. “We’re able to help patients ranging from the smallest premature infants to young adults with pediatric diseases while delivering the lowest radiation dose achievable in the region,” he explains. “This is important because sensitivity to radiation is highest earlier in life.” While Dr. Oros loves getting to connect with and help patients and families on a daily basis, he’s equally excited to be part of a leading-edge team.
