Ankur Parikh - CTCA Medical Director of Precision Medicine
quotation

My approach to caring for each patient is to treat him or her as a person, not a disease. I listen to my patients to make sure their needs are addressed and I make sure they have a multidisciplinary approach to their care. I do my best to treat their cancer with advanced, evidence-based therapies, and encourage them to be directly involved in their treatment plan.

Patient Ratings
The patient ratings and comments on this page are obtained from an external Press Ganey® outpatient survey provided to all eligible CTCA patients within one to two weeks of their treatment occurance. Raw data from the answers to the survey questions about our physicians are calculated by Press Ganey into a one- to five- star rating. In the spirit of transparency, all patient comments are posted as written by the patient, whether they are positive or negative. We only exclude comments if they are deemed to be slanderous or libelous, contain profanity or vulgar language, or do not relate to the patient's experience with the doctor involved. As a result, the comments are the views and opinions of the patients surveyed and are not endorsed by, and may not necessarily reflect the opinion of, CTCA.

"Dr. Parilkh is my oncologist. I saw him twice the first day I came to the Center. The first meeting we just talked by the second meeting that day he had an entire care plan in place. He told me what he hoped would happen and a back up plan in place if something different needed to be done. He made me feel that even with such a negative prognosis there was still something that could be done. I can't tell you what a sense of relief I felt knowing I wasn't fighting this alone."
