Medical Oncology, Hematology
Maria Valente, MD, is board-certified in medical oncology and practices at Cancer Specialists of North Florida's (CSNF) Southpoint location. Originally from Michigan, Dr. Valente earned both her Bachelor of Science and Doctor of Medicine from the University of Michigan before setting her eyes on warmer climates and completing her residency at the University of Florida. She went on to complete her fellowship in hematology and oncology at Mayo Clinic in Jacksonville, before joining CSNF in 2007. She believes it is an exciting time for her to practice oncology because there are so many new treatments to offer patients. Committed to treating the whole patient, Dr. Valente enjoys the collaborative approach CSNF takes through the use of social workers and registered dietitians. She works with her colleagues to ensure that all aspects of a patient’s needs are attended to. This builds a trust within their team that is unmatched at many other practices in the area, she says.
When not at work, Dr. Valente enjoys spending time with her three children, water skiing and running.
