It’s a long journey from Pakistan to the American Midwest. And yet it’s here in Zion, Illinois, that Pakistan native Dr. Rakhshanda Neelam feels right at home.

As a medical oncologist at Cancer Treatment Centers of America® (CTCA) at Midwestern Regional Medical Center (Midwestern), Dr. Neelam feels fortunate to work in such a supportive and compassionate environment—one in which integrative care is more than just a goal; it’s a working philosophy.

After graduating from Fatima Jinnah Medical College in Pakistan, she completed her residency at Edgewater Hospital in Chicago. She then completed a fellowship in medical oncology and hematology at the Chicago Medical School.

Dr. Neelam is board certified in internal medicine and medical oncology.

Prior to joining CTCA®, Dr. Neelam held positions as an oncologist/hematologist at a number of hospitals.
