Detroit-based Barbara Ann Karmanos Cancer Institute is now treating patients at the new Karmanos Cancer Institute – Roseville. Located at 30550 Utica Road, this cancer center provides medical oncology services to patients in southern Macomb County.

The new clinic is the 16th location of Karmanos.

“By expanding our comprehensive cancer care into more communities, we give more patients access to their best chance of beating cancer,” said Brian Gamble, president of Karmanos Cancer Hospital in Detroit. “Recruiting and retaining the best oncologists and expanding our reach demonstrates our commitment to increasing the availability of our expertise and tomorrow’s promising treatments.

“The 6,000 square foot location will offer clinical supplies, infusion and pharmacy services. Soon, patients will be able to receive chemotherapy treatments in the clinic,” Gamble adds. “As an extension of our Detroit headquarters and home base, our specialists work to provide patients with the best chance of a favorable outcome.”

dr Tarik Hadid, a hematologist and medical oncologist, joins Karmanos and will primarily treat patients with multiple types of cancer at the Roseville Clinic.

“I am excited to join an NCI-designated comprehensive cancer center and to bring world-class cancer care to more patients at the new clinic,” said Hadid. “The level of care Karmanos provides is exceptional, and I look forward to bringing the same care to Roseville and the surrounding communities. More importantly, our patients can focus on their healing instead of worrying about long journeys to get the best cancer care.”

Hadid has over a decade of experience treating multiple types of cancer, including lung, head and neck, thymus, mesothelioma and esophageal cancer. He is a member of the multidisciplinary teams (MDT) for head and neck oncology, melanoma, sarcoma and thoracic oncology at Karmanos, headquartered in Detroit.

Much of Hadid’s research focuses on conducting clinical and translational studies to improve treatment strategies for patients with head and neck and lung cancer. Through his research, he has conducted numerous clinical studies; published articles, case reports, abstracts and peer-to-peer reviewed original articles; as well as several presentations delivered.

Hadid is also a faculty member of the Hematology/Oncology Fellowship Program and an adjunct professor at Wayne State University School of Medicine. He completed his residency in internal medicine, two fellowships in palliative care and hematology and oncology, and holds two master’s degrees in public health and science.

dr Ammar Sukari, medical oncologist, head and neck oncology MDT and member of the MDTs for breast cancer, thoracic oncology and phase 1 clinical trials at Karmanos, will join Hadid at the Roseville Clinic. At this location, patients will have their treatments and follow-up appointments with one of the two doctors.

The Roseville Clinic is the third cancer center Karmanos has opened in less than a year. The Karmanos Cancer Institute at the Toledo Clinic Cancer Center opened in April 2022 as the first clinic outside of Michigan. Karmanos completed the expansion of the Weisberg Cancer Center in Farmington Hills in October 2022 and celebrated the new Karmanos Cancer Institute at McLaren Greater Lansing in February 2022.
