Dr. George Yang is an Assistant Member in the Section of Head and Neck and Endocrine Oncology in the Moffitt Cancer Center Department of Radiation Oncology. Dr. Yang received his MD from the University of South Florida, Morsani College of Medicine. He completed a Radiation Oncology Residency at Moffitt Cancer Center/University of South Florida, where he also served as Chief Resident. Dr. Yang’s clinical interests focus on the use of radiotherapy techniques such as intensity modulated radiation therapy (IMRT) and image-guided radiation therapy (IGRT) to treat patients with head/neck and endocrine cancers. His research interests focus on the use of multi-modality therapy, including radiation therapy, in the treatment of locally advanced and recurrent head and neck cancers. He is also developing clinical trials in the pursuit of personalizing radiation therapy as part of the Departmental FORT (Future of Radiation Therapy) research program. He is also joining the Moffitt community-based site in the new Wesley Chapel center when it opens in early 2021.

The Provider Rating is an average of all responses to specific care provider-related
questions from our nationally-recognized
Press Ganey Patient Satisfaction Survey.
Responses are measured on a scale of 1 to 5 with 5 being the best score.
Patients that are treated in outpatient or hospital environments may receive
different surveys, and the volume of responses will vary by question.
Comments are gathered from specific care provider-related questions from our
Patient Satisfaction Survey . The comments are submitted by patients
and reflect their views and opinions. Patients are de-identified for confidentiality and
We post both positive and negative comments from the surveys. We do not post comments
that are libelous, slanderous, profane, irrelevant or otherwise inappropriate or may
risk the privacy of our patients.
A “[…]” in the comments below indicates de-identified patient information or comments that
are unrelated to the patient’s experience with the visit to the provider, such as
comments related to another provider, about the survey itself, or otherwise completely
Not all providers will have a star rating or comments. In order to ensure accuracy of our
ratings, we only display ratings for providers who have a minimum of 30 completed from
the previous 12 months.
Provider Ratings and comments are gathered from our nationally-recognized Press Ganey
Patient Satisfaction Survey. If a provider does not have ratings or comments listed it
can be for several reasons, including:
The provider has not yet received the minimum number of patient satisfaction surveys
to be eligible for display. We require a minimum of 30 surveys before we post
results to ensure that the rating is statistically reliable and a true reflection of
He or she may be a researcher or other type of provider that does not see patients.

surveys currently used for these ratings.
