An IU Health Arnett Hospital Release

Lafayette, IN — Indiana University Health Arnett and Horizon Oncology are pleased to announce that Ajita Narayan, MD will join our Cancer Services department in July. Dr. Narayan joins us from Lafayette Cancer Care where she practiced since September 2009. She will begin seeing patients at Horizon Oncology on July 25.

Dr. Narayan received her medical degree from Goa Medical College and her PhD from Tulane University Medical Center.

Dr. Narayan completed a residency in Internal Medicine at St. Luke's Hospital and a fellowship in Medical Oncology and Hematology at University Hospitals Case Medical Center.

She is board certified by the American Board of Internal Medicine and American Board of Medical Oncology and Hematology.

Dr. Narayan's practice philosophy is to implement discoveries from cutting edge science and research to individualize therapeutic options for each patient.
