Board-certified oncologist Dr. Matthew Taub possesses more than two decades of experience administering care to patients with benign and malignant tumors. In his work as an oncology physician, Dr. Matthew Taub follows the industry-respected guidelines put forward by the National Comprehensive Cancer Network (NCCN) to evaluate treatment options for his patients.

To extend the impact of its research and initiatives, NCCN collaborates with cancer organizations around the world. In Africa, NCCN partners with the African Cancer Coalition to improve cancer patient outcomes in sub-Saharan Africa by expanding access to basic care. NCCN also has a strong presence in Asia and Europe, with more than 800,000 NCCN registered practitioners working on these continents.

To facilitate knowledge and resource sharing across its diverse membership base, NCCN translates its guidelines and content into several languages, including French, Korean, and Spanish. NCCN also adapts its guidelines to reflect regional differences in healthcare infrastructure, technology access, and genetic differences in populations.
