Philip Connell, MD, is an expert in radiotherapy with a particular focus on sarcomas, thoracic cancers, and pediatric malignancies.

In addition to his clinical responsibilities, Dr. Connell is an active cancer researcher. He received laboratory training in cancer biology through a National Cancer Institute fellowship. His oncology research program is working to identify molecular markers of treatment resistance and to develop new anti-cancer agents that can overcome these molecular hurdles. His newest ongoing projects involve several novel, high-throughput assays designed to identify potential drugs that modify DNA repair. With these systems, researchers have the potential to discover new chemical compounds with wide-ranging impacts — from improving present oncology therapies to blocking the mutagenic effects of chemotherapy and radiotherapy.

Dr. Connell has received several awards including the American Society of Clinical Oncology Merit Award, American Brachytherapy Society Research Award, Roentgen Society Research Award, Samuel Hellman Teacher of the Year Award, and American Society for Therapeutic Radiology and Oncology Junior Faculty Fellowship Award. He has authored numerous medical reports and textbook chapters, and he serves as a reviewer for several medical journals. He is recognized as a Top Doctor by various publications, including Newsweek and Chicago magazine.

About Our Star Ratings and Comments:

Randomly selected patients are sent patient satisfaction surveys after their visits. We get thousands of survey responses each year. The responses are used to improve patient experience and recognize staff members for the care they provide. Patient survey responses are also used to make star ratings for each provider.

For the star ratings and comments, all feedback on the provider web page is posted as it was given from patients. Comments that do not apply, risk patient privacy, or are not appropriate are not posted. Star ratings and comments come from a number of survey questions. A star rating is not given if a provider only has a small number of survey responses.
