Jordan Torok, MD

  • Clinical Assistant Professor

I am a board-certified radiation oncologist who provides oncology services at the UPMC/St. Clair Hospital Cancer Center. I have a special interest and background in using advanced modalities including stereotactic radiosurgery (SRS), stereotactic body radiation therapy (SBRT) and image guided radiation therapy (IGRT). I work closely with colleagues in medical oncology and surgical specialties from both the community and large hospital networks to care for my patients.
