JOSE P. BARBA, MD
As medical director of the Virginia Harkness Sawtelle Department of Radiation Oncology at HackensackUMC Mountainside,
Dr. Jose Barba has helped to advance one of the leading radiation oncology programs in the area. Three years ago, this program was the
only one in Essex and Passaic counties accredited by the American College of Radiology, a distinction that signifies adherence to the most
stringent standards. Board certified and fellowship trained in radiation oncology, Dr. Barba is part of a highly skilled team of oncologists at
Mountainside, including physicians in specialties such as breast, gynecologic, gastrointestinal and thoracic surgical oncology, who meet once
weekly for a Tumor Board and once monthly for a Breast Tumor Board.
Dr. Barba previously served as medical director of radiation oncology at the Metcalf Institute of Radiation Oncology at the Hospital Center
at Orange and had a private practice in New York for 15 years. Aware of his outstanding reputation, Mountainside recruited him to help
strengthen the cancer program. “Our team is experienced, compassionate and committed to providing patients with superior care,” he says.
“It’s no wonder the radiation oncology department earns the hospital’s highest patient satisfaction rating month after month on independent
Press Ganey and HealthStream surveys.”
Dr. Barba’s professional experience started at Saint Barnabas Medical Center in Livingston, which led him to Mount Sinai Medical Center
in New York for advanced training as chief resident and a three-year fellow in radiation oncology, and later as an assistant clinical professor.
This is Dr. Barba’s third New Jersey Monthly Top Doctor award.
