“Hi, I’m Dr. Sherri Arledge. I’ve been with Southern Cancer Center since 2007.
I’m married, my husband is an attorney. I have two daughters and they go to St. Paul’s High School. They keep us really busy. We’re on the road doing some sort of activity every day every minute that I’m not at work. Saturday is a lot of time spent on the soccer field watching my girls play soccer.
I have a dog named Rebel. He’s a handful, he in fact this morning was requiring me to chase him around the house to get him back in his crate so I could come to work. He’s a British Lab. But I spent a lot of time with him, walking him and throwing the Frisbee. He’s a lot of trouble though.
Probably our family trips are the best memories that I have. We try to make a trip to a national park every year. My favorite has been Yellowstone and Jackson Hole, Wyoming. We enjoyed hiking and seeing all amazing animals everywhere. And my husband and I talked about that trip all the time. On my weather app I keep Jackson Hole, Wyoming on there so I can see what the weather is every day.
I love my job, I love my patients. I love the people that I work with, they make it fun. I have the greatest team of doctors to work with, I love my nurse and my medical assistant and my nurse practitioners. I like getting to know the patients’ families and helping them through difficult times as well. And there are a lot of fun times we get to celebrate with the patients when they complete a course of treatment.
My number one goal for patients, for each patient, is to really have the one-on-one relationship where they feel like I am there looking out for them. That they know I have their best interest at heart. Patients will often tell you, I want you to treat me like you would treat my family and that is always my goal.”
