Dr Paul Kalokerinos is a Medical Oncologist with extensive experience throughout the major cancer centres of South East Queensland. He delivers high-level, evidencebased cancer treatment at Mater Cancer Care Centre and Mater Private Hospital Redland.

Dr Kalokerinos’ training involved treating large numbers of patients in cancer units throughout Brisbane, the Gold Coast and the Sunshine Coast regions. He has extensive experience in caring for patients with a wide range of cancer subtypes, both common and rare and has been exposed to the most advanced cancer treatments through his work with patients enrolled in clinical trials.

Oncologist

Speciality: Oncology

Dr Jones completed his undergraduate medical training at the University of Queensland in 2007. He undertook basic physician training at the Royal Brisbane and Women’s Hospital, and completed 3 years of advanced training in Medical Oncology in 2016. This training included work at the Royal Brisbane, Princess Alexandra, Mater, Toowoomba and Gold Coast Hospitals.

He has extensive experience managing all solid tumour types. He has been involved in many phase III trials exploring novel cancer drugs. He has been the guest speaker at several meetings in Cairns, Brisbane, and the Gold Coast, and is also a member of a number of local and international organisations involved in the care of patients with cancer.

His expertise involves the use of not just chemotherapy and hormone therapy, but a range of small targeted molecules, immunotherapy, and other new biological agents. Given the rapidly changing landscape of knowledge in cancer care, he is regularly attending conferences and staying up to date with the latest advances in treatments for cancer patients with all tumour sub-types.

Dr Jones brings an empathetic and positive attitude towards managing his patients with cancer. He is dedicated to always providing a professional service and enabling his patients to be exposed to the most cutting edge clinical trials. He believes that to achieve optimal outcomes, a focus needs to be not only on the cancer treatments, but also on the psychosocial dynamics of the patient and their families. This requires a holistic approach and working in the medical field for over a decade, Dr Jones has extensive experience in this area.
