Jing Zeng, MD

Associate Professor


Dr. Zeng is a radiation oncologist who specializes in treating patients with lung cancer, thoracic malignancies, and genitourinary tumors, including prostate cancer, using the latest technologies and available clinical trials. She is the Medical Director of the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Center – Proton Therapy and practices at UWMC-Montlake and the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Center – Proton Therapy.

Patient Care Philosophy

“The patient-physician relationship should be a team effort, working together to achieve the same goal. As the physician, I will help the patient understand the diagnosis and available treatment options. Ultimately, the patient chooses the treatment path, but it is my duty to ensure that patients have all the information needed to feel confident in the decision. Cancer is a frightening diagnosis, and even though I cannot always cure my patients, I will always care for each one.”
