Dr. Don Dizon, Medical Advisor

Director of Medical Oncology at Rhode Island Hospital
Survivorship & sexual health

At Midi, Dr. Dizon advises on all aspects of female sexual health for people who have been diagnosed with cancer, no matter where they are in their cancer journey, helping us to “create a place where access to this expertise is scaled and available.” In his practice, which focuses on breast and pelvic cancers, he provides clinical care and support to patients through treatment and beyond. He helps them manage side effects and physical changes, and as they reclaim their wellbeing and full lives, brings unique expertise in sexual health. ”Arousal, desire, sensation, sensuality, satisfaction—all these components change after cancer,” he says. “Body image changes due to surgery, sensation changes due to treatment. For younger women, menopause may be accelerated by 10 to 20 years. I see patients looking for normalization, education, and interventions.”
