My practice focuses on radiation oncology with a specialization in treating patients with genitourinary cancers and primary central nervous system lymphoma, a disease that attacks the lymph tissue of the brain and spinal cord. In addition, I’m an assistant professor of radiation oncology at The Ohio State University Medical School.
I completed my doctorate in molecular oncology (graduate research in angiogenesis and tumor hypoxia) at the University of Oxford as a Rhodes Scholar, and later received my medical degree from the University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine.
As a researcher, my laboratory focus at the OSUCCC – James is translational cancer research using combinations of immunotherapy, immune modulation, targeted radiosensitization and radiation therapy. My work has been published in more than a dozen medical journals such as the Journal for ImmunoTherapy of Cancer, British Journal of Cancer and American Journal of Clinical Oncology.
Cancer is a terrible disease that impacts thousands of people every year. Each of us at The James is committed to working collaboratively to fight cancer and help our patients have longer, happier lives.
At The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center, we support a faculty member’s research and consulting in collaboration with medical device, research and/or drug companies because a faculty member’s expertise can guide important advancements in the practice of medicine and improve patient care. In order to provide effective management of these relationships, the university requires annual disclosures from all faculty members with external interests related to their university responsibilities. As of 12/20/2018, Dr. Raval has reported no relationships with companies or entities.
The overall patient satisfaction rating is an average of all patient responses to the five questions gathered from the Outpatient Oncology survey, developed by Press Ganey Associates for use in oncology clinics across the country. On behalf of The James, Press Ganey administers the survey to patients who see our providers in an outpatient clinic office.

Dr. Raval is a caring and compassionate doctor. I feel very fortunate to have him on my team of doctors.
We love Dr. Raval. We always wait quite a while to see him, but he always spends a good amount of time with us answering questions and giving us a thorough update. He is direct with us, but kind. He gives detailed information and keeps us posted on the latest treatments.
