About Dr. Lavigne

Ruth Lavigne, MD has been named one of the Best Doctors in America® for 2017-2018. The prestigious recognition marks the ninth time that Dr. Lavigne has earned this honor.

The highly regarded Best Doctors in America® List, assembled by Best Doctors, Inc. and audited and certified by Gallup® results from exhaustive polling of close to 40,000 physicians in the United States. In a confidential review, current physician listees answer the question, “If you or a loved one needed a doctor in your specialty, to whom would you refer?”  Best Doctors, Inc. evaluates the results, and verifies all additional information to meet detailed inclusion criteria.

Best Doctors has earned a sterling reputation for reliable, impartial results by remaining totally independent. Doctors cannot pay to be included in the Best Doctors database, nor are they paid to provide their input. The List is a product of validated peer review, in which doctors who excel in their specialties are selected by their peers in the profession.

Over the past 20 years, Best Doctors has earned global acclaim for its remarkable database of physicians, regarded as the world’s premier effort to create a validated, peer-reviewed database of excellence in medicine.  The Best Doctors methodology is rigorously impartial and strictly independent; only those doctors recognized as the top four percent of their respective specialty earn the honor of being named one of the Best Doctors in America.  The experts who are a part of the Best Doctors in America database provide the most advanced medical expertise and knowledge to patients with serious conditions – often saving lives in the process by finding the right diagnosis and right treatment.

“To know that my peers would trust me with the care of a family member is rewarding and humbling,” said Dr. Lavigne. “The kudos go to my incredible staff at the PMC Radiation Oncology department. Between our manager, administrative staff, nurses and therapists, I know my patients’ experience will be the best it can possibly be.”

PMC is proud to showcase Dr. Lavigne’s talents to the region.

Dr. Lavigne received her medical degree from the University of Cincinnati College of Medicine, where she completed her residency in radiation oncology and served as Chief Resident.

She also holds a Master’s of Business Administration from the American Graduate School of International Management. Dr. Lavigne is board certified by the American Board of Radiology.
