Welcome to Radiotherapy Clinics of Georgia – Snellville

Radiotherapy Clinics of Georgia was founded in 1984 by renowned radiation oncologist Dr. Frank Critz. It is a center of excellence in radiation treatment for cancer. We use the latest radiation technology and meticulous research to treat men and women with different types of cancer, including breast, prostate, lung, colon, lymphatic and many others. Radiotherapy Clinics of Georgia is also home to the oldest and most successful prostate seed implant program in existence.

We started with one location in Conyers, Georgia, a quiet suburb of Atlanta. But over the years, we’ve branched out with offices throughout the metro Atlanta. As we’ve expanded, our reputation has grown as well. Radiotherapy Clinics of Georgia has become one of the country’s top cancer treatment and research facilities, especially in the area of prostate cancer.

RCOG – Snellville provides radiation therapy utilizing the most advanced technologies available. We provide quality cancer care in a calm, friendly environment. We offer integrative oncology services to our patients that include nutritional counseling and Life After Cancer programs. There is no longer need to travel outside of Snellville to get the most advanced technology in radiation therapy. Why endure the hassles and expense of traveling for radiation treatment when everything you need is here in Snellville. We invite you to stop by our center to see what we can offer you or your loved one in need of radiation treatments.
