"I believe health is a very complex and dynamic process that requires a balance of physical, mental, emotional and spiritual influences. It is unique to each cancer patient, which is why they benefit greatly from the highly individualized care they are able to receive at Cancer Treatment Centers of America."

As Samantha Hoang was working toward a naturopathic medicine degree, she helped a friend who was her age through cancer treatment. The experience inspired her to learn more about how naturopathic medicine could be used in conjunction with cancer treatments to help people feel stronger throughout their fight and have fewer side effects.
“I knew I wanted to join Cancer Treatment Centers of America because they are constantly raising the bar when it comes to providing patient-focused, integrative cancer care," says Hoang.
In November 2011, Hoang began a two-year residency in naturopathic oncology at Cancer Treatment Centers of America (CTCA) at Southwestern Regional Medical Center in Tulsa, Oklahoma. She is completing a series of oncology-focused rotations with staff naturopathic clinicians, medical oncologists and other specialists. Her training includes supervised clinical practice in oncology, homeopathic, nutritional and botanical medicine, as well as coursework in these modalities.
In the second year of her residency, Hoang will provide personalized naturopathic recommendations for natural therapies (e.g., vitamins, minerals, herbal medicines) that are safe and appropriate to pair with conventional cancer treatments.
“My goals for patients are to guide them toward better health decisions, educate and empower them, fight alongside them through their cancer treatment, and use appropriate natural therapies to enhance their bodies’ innate healing response,” she says.
Hoang earned a doctorate degree in naturopathic medicine from National University of Health Sciences in Lombard, Illinois. She received a bachelor’s degree in pre-medicine from the University of Wisconsin-Madison.
Hoang is a member of the American Association of Naturopathic Physicians, Oncology Association of Naturopathic Physicians and the Oklahoma Association of Naturopathic Physicians.
In her spare time, Hoang enjoys playing the piano and violin, ballroom dancing and cooking.
