Our team of Oncology Information Specialists is dedicated to helping you in your fight against cancer. Only a physician meeting with you face to face can provide specific medical information, advice and treatment—and you will see some of the best when you visit our cancer hospitals.
However, right now we can support your search for the right physician and cancer treatment facility. We'll offer you some tools to help you in your decision-making process. We’re here via phone (1-800-615-3055), online chat or email.
"I had a patient tell me, ‘You have great medicine here, but the most important thing I received by coming was hope!’ The way I see it, our job is to create a healing environment focused not only on the external surroundings and treatment, but equally important is the internal environment—the thoughts, expectations, hopes and fears. I know that can begin with the first phone call."
– Bret Reed
"After more than 15 years, I still get a tear now and then hearing the stories, the hardships that people must endure. I like helping people. I like that people who come to our hospitals tell me how wonderfully they were treated. It helps me to try a little bit harder to encourage the next person to come and see what we have to offer."
– Doug White
"I interact with patients, their families and friends via telephone, email and personal contact. I assist them with insurance, scheduling and sometimes, travel needs. As part of an organization that provides the highest quality of medical and personal care, I know the patient’s needs will be met at CTCA."
– Melissa Knox
"To interact with people and help them find the care and hope they are looking for is very rewarding. Our treatment philosophy, treating the whole person not just their cancer, makes this task very easy to accomplish."
– Pattie Berens
"Many of our patients were fighters with little hope. But when they arrived at CTCA and saw that we are here to fight along side them, their despair turned into hope. We offer classes not only for the patient, but also for the caregivers. Cancer affects the entire family. There is no extra charge for a hug."
