Dr. Bonin is  a member of the American Board of Radiology and the American Society for Radiation Oncology.

Dr. Bonin chose to specialize in radiation oncology both because of the interesting scientific research aspects and because it is such a direct approach to fighting cancer. He believes in the importance of continuously learning about the most up-to-date cancer treatments, but focuses on maintaining a personal approach in his practice.

While in medical school in Rochester, Dr. Bonin grew to love living in Minnesota. St. Luke’s provided him with an opportunity to practice the nature of care he was hoping for and to live in the “Land of 10,000 Lakes.”

In his free time, Dr. Bonin enjoys spending time with his wife of 20 years and his four children. They enjoy traveling, particularly to southern California where they can take advantage of the warm weather and visit extended family.
