Meet #TeamRoswell: Dr. Mariola Poss

"I am constantly inspired by the strength and courage of my breast cancer patients."

As a surgical oncologist at Breast Care of Western New York, I have the best of both worlds – I get to work with the community and utilize the many resources at Roswell Park. My patients benefit from state-of-the-art technology and specialized services that enhance their care and quality of life.

Since I grew up in Western New York, I have a strong connection to the area. I spent five years in Texas practicing general surgery before coming back to Buffalo for a breast cancer fellowship at Roswell Park. I was excited to see the growth and development of the city and decided to stay.

I love my job because of the amazing patients I encounter every day. I am constantly inspired by their strength and courage. I watch them overcome struggles and daily challenges, and it helps keep things in perspective for me.
