A passion for patients and a craving for a cure. 

Cedar Lake Oncology has served patients on the Mississippi Gulf Coast for several years and is a department of Merit Health Biloxi and is lead by William D. Burleson, MD; radiation oncologist. Cedar Lake Oncology has completely transformed the way they deliver treatment and service to their patients.

We know that cancer treatment can be an overwhelming, intimidating and emotional process, which is why we have focused whole-heartedly on ensuring that we are prepared to help each of our patients throughout every stage of their treatment from diagnosis, to radiation, to recovery and survival.  We also know that our patients are not the only people who need comforting during this difficult time which is why we aim to provide resources, help and support to our patients’ loved ones as well.


Our team is made up of our caring office staff, onsite radiation oncologist, dosimitrist, physicist and radiation therapy nurse. Each of these individuals is specially trained to provide care to our patients and we are lucky to have such compassionate members as part of our team.

Cedar Lake Oncology Center is the only outpatient radiation oncology center in Biloxi and is able to serve patients throughout the Mississippi Gulf Coast and surrounding areas in the comfort of their own community.  Whether a patient needs a single treatment or 7 weeks of treatment, we believe that they should have a convenient and comfortable setting to turn to for their care, and Cedar Lake Oncology Center provides just that.
