Bio

Dennis C. Shrieve, MD, PhD, is the Rudolph S. and Edna Reese Research Professor and chair of the Department of Radiation Oncology at the University of Utah School of Medicine. He is a member of the Experimental Therapeutics Program at the Huntsman Cancer Institute and co-director of the Stereotactic Radiosurgery Program at the University.

Shrieve is board certified by the American Board of Radiology in Radiation Oncology and has primary clinical research interests in adult and pediatric neuro-oncology, pediatric radiation oncology, and stereotactic radiotherapy. His basic research interests include intrinsic radiosensitivity of human tumors, the mechanisms of intrinsic cellular resistance to radiation and chemotherapy, and combined chemotherapy/radiotherapy.

Shrieve serves on the Board of Trustees of the American Board of Radiology and is past-President of the International Stereotactic Radiosurgery Society. He has been listed in Best Doctors in America for over 10 years.

Shrieve received his MD from the University of Miami and his PhD in radiation biophysics from the University of California at Berkeley. He served on the faculties of the University of California, San Francisco, and Harvard Medical School before coming to the University of Utah.

Shrieve is the author or co-author of over 150 articles or book chapters in the medical and scientific literature. He co-editied the book "Human Radiation Injury" in 2010.

Clinical areas of special expertise include pediatric brain tumors, adult brain tumors, stereotactic radiosurgery and treatment of brain metastases.

We like Dr Randy Jensen a lot, but we did not see him very much that day, except for the first hour.

January 31, 2014

We were extremely impressed with Dr Shrieve. He was very patient and thorough when answering all of our questions. He spent quite a bit of time with us and that meant a lot.

January 29, 2014

I was there for a consultation of spine MRI an they had no clue they were looking at my MRI of brain which was last week. I had to tell them why I was there. then he quickly looked at MRI of spine for 2 min which did not make me feel comfortable an said he would coordinate with my oncologist.

September 09, 2013

This was a routine follow-up, so I knew what to expect.

June 17, 2013

We really appreciated the attention and clear explanations given. We came away feeling very confident in the physician and other staff and very positive about treatment plans.

March 25, 2013

good

January 21, 2013

We felt well cared for and in competant hands.

December 28, 2012

Dr. Schrieve seemed to have a bit of a lack of respect for what Dr. Cohen had been planning and implementing

December 06, 2012

All is very good

March 14, 2012

Dr. Schreive was able to answer the questions i asked. I wouldn't be where I am today without him!

Very impressed with the compassion showed by my care provider Dr. Dennis Shrieve .

August 11, 2011

Good overall, especially considering how busy the department has been of late. No complaints.
