“I believe that the more patients understand their condition, the better chance they have to make good decisions regarding their health,” says Brent Paxton, Chiropractic Physician at Cancer Treatment Centers of America® (CTCA), Chicago. “My job is to both treat and educate patients.”
Dr. Paxton earned his Bachelor of Science in Human Biology at National College of Chiropractic in Lombard, Illinois, in 1985. He completed his Doctor of Chiropractic at the same institution in 1987.
Since 1988, Dr. Paxton has provided chiropractic care in private-practice settings in Zion, Illinois. As a chiropractic physician, Paxton examined patients, provided diagnoses and performed physical therapy and a wide variety of treatment techniques. During his career, he has continued to pursue additional training and education to maintain a high quality of care. He joined CTCA® as a part-time chiropractor in 2011, then became a full-time Chiropractic Physician here in October 2014.
At CTCA, Dr. Paxton offers chiropractic care to support patients during medical treatment for cancer. He sees a benefit to the integrative approach at CTCA, along with the ability for patients to receive all their care at one facility. He encourages patients to ask questions and takes the time to provide whatever responses they need. “I want to provide whatever information my patients need to positively affect their life and lifestyle,” says Dr. Paxton.
Outside of CTCA, Dr. Paxton and his wife enjoy snow skiing with their three children and watching them play soccer.
Patient ratings and comments
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. Following industry best practice, star ratings and comments are only published for physicians with a minimum of 30 completed patient surveys.
