Dr. Asha Karippot joined Cancer Treatment Centers of America® (CTCA) in Tulsa, Oklahoma, in July 2017. She is an experienced oncologist, and is board certified in internal medicine, medical oncology and hematology. As a Medical Oncologist and Hematologist at CTCA®, Dr. Karippot sees a variety of cancer patients while focusing on patients with colon, breast and lung cancer.

Dr. Karippot believes in educating her patients while developing an integrative treatment plan tailored to each individual. “Working together with other doctors and supportive care clinicians, all under one roof, provides seamless care for our patients,” she says. “This helps increase quality of life and may make them feel more secure, comfortable and confident throughout their treatment journey.”

Dr. Karippot completed her medical degree at the Calicut Government Medical College in Kerala, India, graduating summa cum laude. In 2008, she completed an internship and residency in internal medicine at Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai in New York City. Dr. Karippot then served as chief fellow while completing a fellowship in hematology and oncology at Seton Hall University in New Jersey.

Following graduation, Dr. Karippot worked in private practice as a medical oncologist for five years and served as director of an infusion center. She has experience as a mentor for medical students, residents and nurse practitioners. Dr. Karippot also is a member of several organizations, including the American Society of Hematology, the American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO) and the American Medical Association, and has authored several articles in peer-reviewed journals and presented her work at national conferences. In 2019, she began a four-year term serving as Practice Guidelines Implementation Network (PGIN) Representative on the Survivorship Guideline Advisory Group (GAG) of ASCO. In addition, she is the current chair of the Commission on Cancer CTCA Tulsa cancer committee, and sits on the Policy and Advocacy Panel of the American Society of Clinical Oncology.

Dr. Karippot moved from North Texas to Tulsa with her husband and two children. Her interests outside of the medical field include traveling, music and dancing.
