Dr. Jeanine Werner graduated from Tufts University and received her medical degree from Columbia University College of Physicians and Surgeons in New York City. She completed her residency at NYU Medical Center in New York City where she worked extensively with AIDS patients, during the height of the epidemic, learning how to treat the whole patient from an internal medicine perspective. Her residency was followed by her Medical Oncology and Hematology Fellowship at Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center in New York where she focused on breast and GI cancers, participating in multiple clinical trials, some of which have translated into advanced cancer treatments. Dr. Werner then returned to Maryland and has been practicing Medical Oncology and Hematology in Annapolis since 1998, practicing for a decade at Anne Arundel Medical Center’s DeCesaris Cancer Institute, most recently joining Maryland Oncology Hematology specializing in breast, gynecologic, and gastrointestinal malignancies, and benign hematology. Dr. Werner is board certified in Medical Oncology and Hematology and is privileged at University of Maryland Baltimore Washington Medical Center. She has been a recipient of an American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO) award and has won the peer appointed What’s Up Magazine’s Annapolis Top Doc award.
“It is a privilege to be able to be entrusted by people when facing the scariest thing they have ever faced. I take an evidence based and guideline-based approach and try to tailor a plan that takes both objective data and subjective needs into account. I am direct, honest and kind…reassuring by helping the patient to understand what our goals and limitations are, so they feel empowered to make decisions based on that information.”
Dr. Werner was born in New York City and grew up in Silver Spring, Maryland. She currently lives in Davidsonville and is married to internal medicine specialist, Tom Hattar, M.D. who also practices in Annapolis. She has two children, Rebecca, 24 years old, who works on Capitol Hill with an interest in energy policy, and, Mitchell, 21 years old, graduating from college this fall. She enjoys reading novels and particularly loves traveling and exploring new places on foot.
