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 patients diagnosed with a variety of cancer types, while focusing on those with gastrointestinal cancers, hematologic malignancies, neuroendocrine tumors and 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.

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 occurrence. 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 including comments directed at hospital COVID-19 policies and procedures. 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.

"The communication has not been the best between me and my oncologist. I have felt like I am not being given all the information I am looking for."

"some very minor issues with us having never dealt with cancer before and our provider being so experienced with it .. sometimes it seems like she makes some assumptions that we are not up to speed on. We are learning to be more aggressive with asking questions."

"We both LOVE her and her staff. We feel validated, DR Karipott listens to his concerns and new symptoms, and everyone acts to help him have the best life possible. Even though we know this cancer will shorten his life and it is not survivable, knowing that he is getting the best possible care, all while following clinical protocols, helps relieve our minds of second guessing every move or procedure he has."

"she is not decisive and she didn't seem confident in my treatment plan. my cea hadn't come back yet and she read the numbers from the previous blood sample. I know this because I was waiting for the new numbers on my phone. when she didn't think the numbers had changed she recommended I go get a second opinion."

"I was put off a little because the Oncologist couldn't remember her nurses name and failed to introduce her nurse at the beginning of the meeting, instead waiting until she was ready to walk out, and then couldn't remember her name. Seemed rude to me and did not make me feel like I would get the attention I needed from her."
