The Detroit-based Barbara Ann Karmanos Cancer Institute is now seeing patients at the new Karmanos Cancer Institute – Roseville. Located at 30550 Utica Road, this cancer center provides medical oncology services to patients in southern Macomb County.
The new clinic is Karmanos’ 16th location.
“By extending our comprehensive cancer care to more communities, we are giving more patients access to their best chance to beat cancer,” says Brian Gamble, president of Karmanos Cancer Hospital in Detroit. “Recruiting and retaining the top oncologists and expanding our reach shows our commitment to increasing the availability of our expertise and tomorrow’s promising treatments.
“The 6,000-square-foot location will offer clinical care, infusion, and pharmacy services. Soon, patients will be able to receive chemotherapy treatments in clinic,” Gamble adds. “As an extension of our headquarters and home base in Detroit, our specialists work to provide patients their best chance at a favorable outcome.”
Dr. Tarik Hadid, a hematologist and medical oncologist, joins Karmanos and will primarily see patients for multiple types of cancer at the Roseville clinic.
“I am thrilled to join an NCI-designated comprehensive cancer center and provide world-class cancer care to more patients at the new clinic,” Hadid says. “The level of care that Karmanos delivers is exceptional, and I look forward to bringing that same care to Roseville and surrounding communities. More important, our patients can focus on their healing instead of worrying about traveling long distances for the best cancer care.”
Hadid has more than a decade of experience treating multiple cancers, including lung, head and neck, thymic, mesothelioma, and esophageal cancers. He is a member of Karmanos’ Head and Neck Oncology, Melanoma, Sarcoma and Thoracic Oncology Multidisciplinary Teams (MDT), headquartered in Detroit.
Much of Hadid’s research focuses on conducting clinical and translational trials to improve treatment strategies for patients with head and neck and lung cancers. Through his research, he has conducted numerous clinical studies; published articles, case reports, abstracts, and peer-to-peer-reviewed original works; as well as delivered multiple presentations.
Hadid also is a faculty member of the Hematology/Oncology Fellowship Program and associate professor at Wayne State University School of Medicine. He completed his residency in internal medicine, two fellowships in palliative medicine and hematology and oncology, and holds two master’s degrees in public health and science.
Dr. Ammar Sukari, medical oncologist, leader of the Head and Neck Oncology MDT, and member of the Breast Cancer, Thoracic Oncology and Phase 1 Clinical Trials MDTs at Karmanos, will join Hadid at the Roseville clinic. At this location, patients will have their treatments and surveillance appointments with one of the two physicians.
The Roseville clinic is the third cancer center Karmanos has opened in less than a year. The Karmanos Cancer Institute at The Toledo Clinic Cancer Center opened in April 2022, the first clinic outside Michigan. Karmanos completed the expansion of the Weisberg Cancer Center in Farmington Hills in October 2022 and celebrated the new Karmanos Cancer Institute at McLaren Greater Lansing in February 2022.
