Alex S. Metzger, MD

Dr. Metzger joined MCC in 2006 and feels extremely lucky that his first job was his dream job. Supportive colleagues, a collaborative environment and the challenge of helping each patient are the reasons he enjoys going to work every day.

Passionate about research, Dr. Metzger provides quality evidence-based oncologic and hematologic care with commitment and compassion. He believes every patient comes to him with a unique perspective that should help shape their treatment plan. An award-winning doctor, he has honed his skills by learning from his professional partners, whether they sit in the office next door or teach at a distant university.

Before he joined MCC, Dr. Metzger studied and worked in New York, Philadelphia and Los Angeles. He feels his early research in genetics gave him the scientific fundamentals he still uses today. He loves working in the dynamic field of oncology, which constantly presents him with new ways to make his patients healthier.

Born in Maine, Dr. Metzger now enjoys the natural beauty of Marin and San Francisco. When he’s not at work, he makes family his priority and spends his time hiking, trail running and swimming at a master level.
