Dr. Sigrun Hallmeyer , MD

Internal Medicine and Medical Oncology


I was born in East Berlin. When I completed my common schooling, I qualified academically to study medicine. But this was not allowed, because I was the daughter of a physician and an engineer, and because my older sister had already been admitted to the university to study medicine. So when I turned eighteen I escaped to the West, where I qualified for medical school. After the fall of the Berlin Wall, I moved back to my family and was accepted to the Medical Faculty of the Humboldt University of Berlin. I was always drawn to the field of oncology. As a student, I spent many nights in the oncology ward, and was exposed to the clinical and emotional challenges which cancer patients face. I visited the U.S. for several clinical clerkships, and was impressed with the high level of academic education as well as the practice of medicine in the U.S. These rotations laid the foundation for my desire to pursue a career in America. I joined Oncology Specialists in 2005. I am proud to be a member of a team of physicians and nurses who offer the highest quality of patient care. I feel privileged to treat a very special group of patients, and honored to provide support at a very difficult juncture in a patient’s life. By working at Oncology Specialists, I feel that my childhood dream from East Germany has come true. Dr. Hallmeyer has done research in breast and prostate cancer. She has published work in lymphoma and prostate cancer and has presented her results at international meetings. Dr. Hallmeyer conducts research studies in these areas and in melanoma, other types of skin cancer and breast cancer.
