Practicing Since: 2010
Dr. Lila Ammouri joined Cancer Treatment Centers of America (CTCA) at Western Regional Medical Center in 2010 as a hospitalist. She decided to work with CTCA because she wanted to practice in an environment that integrates both traditional and complementary medicine therapies.
“The unique approach to patient care at CTCA allows me to practice modern medicine in an institution that supports a collaborative team design,” says Dr. Ammouri.
Dr. Ammouri earned a medical degree from the University of Arizona College of Medicine in Tucson. She then completed an internal medicine residency at Banner Good Samaritan Medical Center (BGSMC), Carl T. Hayden VA Medical Center in Phoenix. She then continued on at BGSMC as a Chief Resident. She also completed a fellowship in hospice and palliative medicine from the Mayo Clinic in Phoenix.
Prior to joining CTCA, Dr. Ammouri was a physician at an outpatient practice in Tucson. She has research experience from various hospitals, where she studied topics such as potential side effects of the metabolite oxymorphone in patients with renal failure and assisted with lymphedema studies.
“I want to help patients better understand their disease process and management of their illness,” says Dr. Ammouri. “I also want patients to take an active role in their own care by being armed with the necessary information to make informed decisions. My ultimate goal is to maximize patient care by identifying the individual needs of each patient.”
Dr. Ammouri’s work has been published in the Journal of Biologics: Targets and Therapy. She has volunteered her time with the American Medical Women’s Association and Commitment to Underserved People, a homeless and refugee clinic in Tucson.
In her free time, Dr. Ammouri enjoys traveling and writing.
