Dr. David Bartels

Medical Oncologist & Founder

For Dr. Bartels, practicing medical oncology is a true passion. From the time he began pursuing medicine, he has always had a strong connection to cancer prevention and treatment, and he is dedicated to the advancement of the field and especially to providing exceptional care to all of his patients. As many of them will attest, Dr. Bartels always goes above and beyond for his patients.

Dr. Bartels treats all types of cancer and blood disorders. He opened Beacon Cancer Care for the purpose of creating a cancer center that treats patients and staff as family. “The culture at Beacon is something that I am very proud of—Beacon is often referred to as a happy place, which is not typically the first word that comes to mind when describing a cancer center."

Dr. David Bartels moved to Coeur d’Alene from Iowa in 2014 and quickly fell in love with North Idaho. Dr. Bartels and his wife Krista are dedicated to the community and wonderful residents of North Idaho. Together they enjoy many of the wonderful outdoor activities the area has to offer, with cycling, snow skiing and fly fishing being a few of Dr. Bartels’ favorites. They have a son, Eames, and a daughter, Greer.
