Nicholas F. Evageliou, MD Nicholas F. Evageliou, MD, is an attending physician at CHOP’s Cancer Center with a special interest in kidney tumors in children, but with a broad clinical practice including liquid and solid tumors. Areas of Expertise: Kidney tumors Locations: Specialty Care & Surgery Center, Voorhees; Specialty Care, Princeton at Plainsboro Appointments and Referrals: 1-800-TRY-CHOP (1-800-879-2467) Background I provide care for a broad range of oncology and hematology conditions in our suburban clinic in Voorhees, New Jersey. Our patients benefit from a small, approachable and welcoming clinic in a suburban setting that also is linked to the world-class medical expertise, clinical research and state-of-the-art facilities at Children's Hospital in Philadelphia. Our team spends a significant amount of time answering questions and explaining complicated treatments, and we work hard to provide treatment for almost all cancers treated at the main hospital in Philadelphia. While I maintain a clinical expertise with liquid tumors, my specific research interest is in solid tumors and kidney tumors in particular. My past research experience also includes work on neuroblastoma.

Patients that are treated in outpatient or hospital environments may receive different surveys, and the volume of responses will vary by question. Responses are measured on a scale of 1 to 5 with 5 being the best score. We are committed to true transparency. However, to ensure the comments are fair and correctly attributed, we review each one before posting to the website. We exclude entire comments that disclose patient's protected health information, are off-topic, or include other confidential or inappropriate content. Comments will appear on provider bios only if providers have a minimum number of comments. Comments are shared internally for education purposes to ensure that we are doing our very best for the patients and families for whom we are privileged to care. The comments are submitted by patients and families and reflect their views and opinions. The comments are not endorsed by and do not reflect the views of Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia.
