Klaus Buzzi, DABR (Diplomate of the American Board of Radiology) is a key member of the Care Logistic’s management team. Mr. Buzzi joined USMD in 2006 and has served as President of the USMD Cancer Treatment Centers Division. Klaus Buzzi created a business model for USMD that focuses on implementing meaningful clinical technology and as a result of adopting his business model; the Cancer Center program has enjoyed spectacular growth under his leadership.
Currently, Mr. Buzzi is the Chief Medical Physicist here at MC Radiation Oncology Center and oversees the Radiation Therapy Program. Mr. Buzzi’s background is in medical physics and he has attained board certifications in all three medical physics specialties:
Diagnostic Radiological Physics
Therapeutic Radiological Physics
Mr. Buzzi is one of only several physicists in the country to be triple board certified in Nuclear Physics, Diagnostic Radiological Physics, and Therapeutic Radiological Physics. He received his Undergraduate Degree in Biology at St. Francis College in New York and went on to earn a Graduate Degree in Physics from Hunter College, CUNY in New York.
Mr. Buzzi spent the first four years of his career at the Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center, followed by 14 years of service as the Director of Physics, at the Nassau County Medical Center. While at the Nassau County Medical Center he was privileged to assist Dr. John Archembeau in his research on early proton treatments and boron neutron capture activities at the Brookhaven National Laboratories.
From 1986 to 1993, Mr. Buzzi revitalized the Biomedical Physics Program at the King Faisal Specialist in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, serving as Chairman of the Biomedical Physics program there for the last three years of his contract. Mr. Buzzi established the first Secondary Standards Dosimetry Lab in the Middle East and restarted a number of dormant programs, such as the fast neutron treatment facility, as well as introducing new technology, such as PET and spectroscopic MRI.
In recent years, Mr. Buzzi’s interest has progressed to the application of his medical physics expertise in various business environments. We at MC Radiation Oncology Center are thrilled to have Mr. Buzzi oversee our program.
