At Cancer Treatment Centers of America (CTCA), we are relentless in our mission to bring the latest medical innovations and treatments to our patients’ bedsides as quickly as possible. Our medical oncologists are committed to finding the treatment options that offer cancer patients the most hope and best quality of life.
For most of our patients, a medical oncologist serves as their main doctor. Medical oncologists specialize in diagnosing cancer and using treatments such as chemotherapy, targeted therapy and hormone therapy to fight the disease.
Our medical oncologists have significant experience in treating complex and advanced stage disease. They use leading-edge treatment protocols and breakthrough medicine to treat many types of cancer. They personalize treatment by using testing and innovative tools.
Furthermore, our medical oncologists work with patients to select the method of treatment delivery and drugs that aggressively fight cancer and have the least side effects. Our medical oncologists also work in tandem with naturopathic oncology providers, dietitians and other clinicians at CTCA who provide recommendations for therapies that minimize the side effects of chemotherapy and other medical treatments. Patient Empowered Care®, our unique model of care at CTCA, brings a dedicated team of these cancer experts together on a daily basis. Each clinician takes turns meeting with a patient during a single appointment. This allows patients to comfortably stay in one room as their care providers come to them. Additionally, it provides for a seamless experience and helps patients better retain the information they receive from their care team.
