Dr. Sweeney is dedicated to the advancement in the care and treatment of cancer patients through minimally invasive, image-guided techniques. She is an active member of multiple medical societies, including the Radiological Society of North America (RSNA), Society of Interventional Radiology (SIR), American Roentgen Ray Society (ARRS), American College of Radiology (ACR), American Board of Radiology (ABR), American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO) and the Society of Interventional Radiology (SIO). She serves as a reviewer for The Journal of Vascular and Interventional Radiology (JVIR) and the Journal of Oncology Practice (JOP). She is an investigator/co-investigator on several phase I/II and phase III multicenter randomized clinical trials. Her research interests include development of novel targeted and minimally invasive image-guided cancer therapies. Dr. Sweeney’s clinical interests are image-guided therapies as part of a multidisciplinary approach to provide the most effective treatment for patients with cancer while maintaining an optimal quality of life. She is specialized in minimally invasive interventional oncology procedures. Her expertise includes percutaneous ablation of primary and metastatic liver and renal and bone tumors (microwave ablation, radiofrequency ablation, cryoablation and irreversible electroporation), embolization of tumors (bland embolization, chemoembolization and radioembolization), other minimally invasive procedures to aid in obtaining diagnosis and treating side effects and complications resulting from cancer involving the hepatobiliary, genitourinary, musculoskeletal, gastrointestinal and vascular systems.

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.
The provider practices in a specialty or office that does not use the specified
surveys currently used for these ratings.
