Carolyn Wild, MD
While serving in the Air Force, Carolyn Wild, MD valued the culture of collaboration and communication between colleagues. That’s why she chose Group Health—for the integrated environment allows her to work closely with a patient’s team of doctors.
“We collaborate with primary care and other specialists every day,” she says. “We work together even before we diagnose the problem. Our goal is to come up with the best answers and treatments for our patients.”
Dr. Wild was the chief of oncology at Travis Air Force base for seven years. She is board certified in hematology/oncology, internal medicine, and medical oncology.
Dr. Wild received her medical degree from Uniformed Services University of the Health Sciences at the F. Edward Hebert School of Medicine in Bethesda, Maryland. She was an internal medicine resident at David Grant USAF Medical Center at Travis Air Force Base in California. She completed her hematology and oncology fellowship from University of California at the Davis School of Medicine.
“I provide expertise tailored to individuals and families,” says Dr. Wild. “I enjoy it when we both contribute information and understand the goals of therapy.” She notes that Seattle Cancer Care Alliance provides invaluable resources to support treatments.
As a medical oncologist, Dr. Wild appreciates the long-term relationships she has with her patients. “Amazing relationships are developed through what can be intense and difficult times.” And since the science of oncology moves at a rapid pace, she can offer more hope as time goes on.
When not working with her patients, Dr. Wild spends her time with her three children and likes boating when there’s time.
