Dr Raj Tota

MBBS, FRACP

Medical Oncologist

I am passionate about providing an empathetic and holistic approach and highly conscious of listening to the concerns of patients.

Spoken languages

English, Hindi

Special clinical interests in breast, lung, gastrointestinal, urogenital and head and neck cancers.

Raj graduated from medical school in India and then sought to specialise in medical oncology abroad.  He gained initial post-graduate experience in the United Kingdom and then moved to New Zealand to commence specialist training.  He completed this training at Fremantle and Sir Charles Gairdner hospitals at the end of 2012 and was subsequently awarded fellowship to the Royal Australasian College of Physicians.

After practising as a consultant in New South Wales, Raj moved back to his chosen home of Perth where he worked in the oncology and palliative care units at Fiona Stanley Hospital, Bethesda and Sir Charles Gairdner Hospital. He now consults at St John of God Hospital Murdoch and combines this position with his private practice in Mandurah and his regional practice in Geraldton.

Key clinical interests

Raj treats all tumour types, but his key areas of interest lie in the management of breast, lung, gastrointestinal, urogenital and head and neck cancers. He also has a special interest in teaching current doctors and training those of the future, and is actively involved in the development of online resources for the Royal College of Physicians.
