"We always put patients in charge of their care. That's the model at Cancer Treatment Centers of America. Our job as physicians and caregivers is to provide patients with all the information about different options of treatment and encourage them to choose what’s best for them."
Dr. Pankaj G. Vashi
Lead National Medical Director, National Clinical Director of Gastroenterology/Nutrition & Metabolic Support & Gastroenterologist
Drawn to the philosophy of integrative and personalized patient care championed by Cancer Treatment Centers of America (CTCA), Dr. Pankaj Vashi left his large hospital employer in 1992 to join the gastroenterology team at CTCA at Midwestern Regional Medical Center. He has never looked back.
A year after joining CTCA, Dr. Vashi founded the Nutrition and Metabolic Support Team to address the often-overlooked malnutrition and weight loss of people living with cancer. He continues to serve as the team’s Medical Director, actively leading his staff in their efforts to balance the complex nutritional needs of cancer patients.
Dr. Vashi’s clinical background spans two continents. He earned a medical degree from the University of Mumbai in Mumbai, India. He then went on to complete two residencies at Goa Medical College in Goa, India, and subsequently at Hurley Medical Center in Flint, Michigan. He also completed a gastroenterology fellowship at the University of Michigan.
Dr. Vashi is board certified by the American Board of Internal Medicine. He has spoken widely about the critical role of metabolic support in oncology care. Every day he brings this passion to his position as the Lead National Medical Director and National Clinical Director of Gastroenterology/Nutrition and Metabolic Support for CTCA.
