Making connections with patients is what inspires Naturopathic Provider Anya Chang most about working at Cancer Treatment Centers of America® (CTCA).

Chang earned her Bachelor of Science in Architectural Engineering Technology at Wentworth Institute of Technology in Boston in 1992. Several years later, she moved toward a career in health care, becoming a certified massage therapist in 2001. She worked as a massage therapist in Breckenridge, Colorado, and ran her own massage clinic from 2002 to 2006 while pursuing a degree in naturopathic medicine.

In 2007, she completed her Doctorate in Naturopathic Medicine at the National College of Natural Medicine, in Portland, Oregon. During her training, she worked at Outside In, a homeless youth shelter as a medical assistant. She was director of her own practice, where she also treated patients with chronic and acute illnesses, before joining CTCA in October 2013. Chang is active in promoting lung cancer awareness in women with Lung Force a subcommittee of the American Lung Association, Georgia Chapter.

At CTCA, Chang provides consultation regarding safe use of dietary supplements to help patients may reduce side effects caused by treatment.

“This approach empowers patients and gives them hope about their health,” says Chang. She is also well-versed in organic gardening and replenishing exercises such as yoga.

Patient Ratings
Star ratings and comments are only available for medical, radiation and gynecologic oncologists. Gynecologic surgical offerings are not included at this time due to a different survey tool required to evaluate these services. CTCA uses a validated Press Ganey® survey, which captures patient experience feedback for the primary oncology services of chemotherapy and radiation therapy at our comprehensive care and research centers. Following industry best practice, star ratings and comments are only published for physicians with a minimum of 30 completed patient surveys.
