Tara Iyengar, MD

Primary Specialty

Hematology & Medical Oncology

Dr. Tara Iyengar joined Ironwood Cancer & Research Centers in March 2013. Dr. Iyengar is a published researcher and board certified in hematology and oncology. This expertise strengthens Dr. Iyengar’s ability to plan the optimal treatment course. She is able to balance the benefits of standard treatments with cutting-edge clinical trial data.

She was specially selected for an accelerated program through Rutgers University and Robert Wood Johnson Medical School which allowed her to finish medical school a year earlier than normal. She then completed her internal medicine residency at Brown University. Following her residency, Dr. Iyengar went on to a Hematology-Oncology Fellowship program at the University of Iowa. Immediately prior to joining Southwest Hematology Oncology, now Ironwood Cancer & Research Centers, she was a principal investigator at TGen Clinical Research Services. Dr. Iyengar is married to a fellow physician and has one small child who makes her smile every day.
