Cancer Care Northwest Welcomes New Medical Oncologist, Arthur Molina III, MD

Posted: January 17, 2024


SPOKANE, WA - Cancer Care Northwest (CCNW) is proud to announce the addition of Arthur Molina III, MD, as the newest medical oncologist/hematologist to join the practice. Dr. Molina will continue CCNW’s mission to provide a fully integrated approach to the prevention, detection, treatment, and healing of cancer and related diseases while inspiring hope for living.

Dr. Molina is a graduate of Stanford University in California and received his medical degree from Baylor College of Medicine in Houston, Texas.  He completed an Internal Medicine residency at the University of Texas in San Antonio and conducted his fellowship in Hematology–Oncology at the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center/University of Washington in Seattle.

As an experienced medical oncologist and cancer care provider, Dr. Molina has a special interest in clinical research and caring for patients while supporting their families. He considers both sides of medicine, pairing science and the latest clinical research on the one hand, with the human side and one’s overall wellbeing on the other hand. Dr. Molina enjoys working with patients, their families, and helping them cope with the demanding challenges that a cancer diagnosis can bring.

In addition to traditional medical oncology therapy options, such as chemotherapy, Dr. Molina utilizes new cutting-edge treatment approaches like immunotherapies, which can offer patients a less toxic and more targeted way to treat their cancer. Immune and targeted therapies, which look at cancers at the molecular level, allow him to focus on treating these genetic mutations with more effectiveness and precision, with fewer side effects than traditional medical oncology treatments. Dr. Molina is invested in the revolution of cancer care and is excited for future medical advancements in cancer treatment. 

Dr. Molina and his wife have 2 college-aged children. He enjoys travel, photography, nature-walks, hiking, as well as birding. Dr. Molina and his family were drawn to the area by the community feel and ability to be closer to nature.
