Margaret McDowell, MD

  • Wednesday, July 31, 2013

While she always wanted to be a doctor, she first provided care as a nurse, and some of her early experiences helping cancer patients encouraged her to specialize in radiation oncology as a physician. Dr. Margaret MacDowell has been with Trident Health for the past 20 years since her residency, often teaming up with patients who are battling breast cancer. “I like having more of an ongoing conversation with patients, rather than me telling them what they need to do. I want them to be comfortable, and I want them to be able to say anything they want to me.” Dr. MacDowell works from Trident Cancer Center through Radiation Oncology Associates of Charleston. Through the years, she has seen encouraging advances in radiation oncology and radiotherapy. “There are fewer side effects of treatment and less tissue damage because we can treat with smaller margins and still obtain good cure rates.”
