About me

Mahsa Mohebtash, MD, serves as chief of the MedStar Franklin Square Cancer Center at Loch Raven. She is a board-certified medical oncologist and hematologist who provides care for patients diagnosed with all types of cancers, and has a specialized interest in treatment of breast, lung, and colorectal malignancies.

Her goal is to assure every patient’s plan of care is built to optimize their quality of life and long-term clinical outcomes.

Dr. Mohebtash earned her medical degree at the Tehran University of Medical Sciences and then pursued an internal medicine residency program at MedStar Union Memorial Hospital. Her training concluded with a fellowship in medical oncology and hematology at the National Cancer Institute at the National Institutes of Health. During her years in practice, Dr. Mohebtash has remained active with several medical societies and professional organizations, committed to the continued advancement of treatment protocols to care for cancer patients.

Dr. Mohebtash’ s Philosophy of Care

“It has been a privilege to take care of so many cancer patients over the years. The relationship that develops between a patient and an oncologist is broad, deep, and very personal. Patients today have many more treatment options than they did 20 years ago. I take the time to explain those options, as well as the pros and cons of each, so that my patient understands and is able to make well-informed decisions. I know that I can’t cure everyone. But I am here with hopes that I can help everyone.”
