Angel Allen joined Cancer Treatment Centers of America® (CTCA) at the hospital in Tulsa, Oklahoma, in 2009. Since that time, Allen has held many roles, including Manager of Personalized Medicine Center and Patient Safety Coordinator. After furthering her education, however, Allen transitioned to her current role in 2018, as a Nurse Practitioner in the Breast Clinic at CTCA®.

Today, Allen works within the breast clinic to provide comprehensive care for people who have breast cancer and other high-risk breast conditions. She educates patients on available treatment options, including surgery, chemotherapy, targeted therapy and radiation.

Allen enjoys the relationships she builds with her patients at CTCA. “I believe that patients should be actively involved in their treatment decisions,” she says. “It is my responsibility to help my patients understand the information so they feel informed and confident in their care.”

Allen received her Bachelor of Science degree in nursing from Langston University in Langston, Oklahoma. She also earned a master’s degree in healthcare administration from Oklahoma State University in Stillwater, Oklahoma. Allen continued her education and received a Master of Science degree focused on family nurse practitioner studies from Maryville University in St. Louis, Missouri.

Prior to joining CTCA, Allen practiced nursing at other health care settings. She was also part of the United States Army, serving for five years. Allen is a member of several professional organizations, including the American Association of Nurse Practitioners, the Association of Oklahoma Nurse Practitioners and the Oncology Nursing Society.

Allen enjoys spending time with her husband and five dogs. She also likes hiking, CrossFit and reading.

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.
