Dr. Tyler Buckley

Medical Oncologist


Medical oncologist and hematologist Dr. Tyler Buckley practices medicine at St. Joseph Regional Medical Center in Lewiston, Idaho. For the last nine years, he has worked as a physician after receiving his medical degree from the University of Tennessee Health Science Center College of Medicine.


Dr. Tyler Buckley is a Board Certified Medical Oncologist who specializes in cancer diagnosis, staging, and therapy. He uses a variety of diagnostic techniques, including tissue and liquid biopsies, x-rays, and genetic and molecular profiling, to develop a highly specific and individual treatment strategy for each patient's malignancy. Chemotherapy, immunotherapy, and targeted treatments are among the treatment modalities he oversees. For a multi-disciplinary approach to cancer treatment, he works closely with surgical and radiation oncologists.


In order to diagnose, treat, and/or prevent blood disorders and malignancies, Dr. Tyler Buckley must be a Board-Certified Hematologist. In addition to treating leukemias, he also treats Hodgkin's lymphomas, non-lymphomas, Hodgkin's plasma cell diseases such multiple myeloma, and bone marrow failure syndrome. Additional areas of expertise include the treatment and prevention of blood clotting and bleeding problems, anemias, particularly iron deficiency, and myeloproliferative diseases.


Diagnose, treat, and prevent blood and cancer illnesses are all part of Hematology and Oncology. Solid tumors, hematologic malignancies, hemophilia, sickle-cell disease, and leukemias are among the ailments and diseases that hematologists and oncologists treat. Patients who want a more individualized approach to healthcare may turn to hematologists and oncologists for guidance in the selection, interpretation, and implementation of a broad range of diagnostic techniques and therapeutic interventions.


For his training and certification as an Internal Medicine specialist, Dr. Tyler Buckley has an allopathic degree. As a result, he is qualified in Medical Oncology, Hematology, and Internal Medicine as a triple-certification specialist.


Dr. Buckley earned both his Cum Laude (undergraduate) and his Medical School degrees with distinction.  Care for patients with a life-threatening or severe condition like cancer is known as palliative care. It treats the individual as a whole, not just their ailment. As soon as feasible, any psychological, spiritual, or social issues should be addressed as well as the underlying reasons of any sickness. A qualified healthcare professional may offer palliative care at a hospital, outpatient clinic, long-term care institution, or at home. All people, regardless of age or stage of illness, are eligible for palliative care.


In palliative care, doctors may utilize many of the same procedures that are used to treat cancer to alleviate a patient's suffering. Tumors that cause discomfort may be slowed down by radiation treatment or chemotherapy. Also, a tumor that puts pressure on nerves or causes discomfort may be removed surgically.


Nurses, physicians, pharmacists, and certified dieticians often collaborate with palliative care professionals. Chaplains and psychologists may also be employed by the military. The palliative care team interacts with the oncology team in order to manage a patient's treatment and offer the best possible quality of life.


There are several ways palliative care experts may aid patients and their loved ones, as well as other health care providers. Skier, climber, and environmentalist Tyler Buckley grew up in the Pacific Northwest, where the great outdoors beckons him every day. Hiking, weightlifting, fishing, pets, and even cooking pique his interest.
