As a radiation oncologist, I enjoy connecting with patients on a personal level in order to provide the best possible care, while treating their cancers with technology that uses my knowledge of both physics and medicine.
When Dr. Borkenhagen is not working, she enjoys snowboarding, yoga, kayaking, gardening, origami, family and friends.
