Dr. Berlin is a medical oncologist who specializes in gastrointestinal cancers such as malignancies of the colon, rectum, anus, esophagus, stomach, small intestine, liver, gallbladder, pancreas and bile ducts. His clinical research efforts focus on novel treatment approaches. Dr. Berlin believes in enrolling patients, when possible, on clinical trials to learn more about the best and safest ways to treat gastrointestional cancers. Improving treatments, while preserving the patient's ability to function normally, are among Dr. Berlin's goals.

As Director of the Clinical Gastrointestinal Program, he works with a multidisciplinary team that includes surgeons and radiation oncologists to improve cure rates and develop a treatment plan specific for each patient. Dr. Berlin serves on a number of national advisory committees, is an editorial board member for the International Journal of GI Cancer and is Editor-in-Chief for Colorectal Cancer Index and Reviews.
