Dr. May has a special interest in minimally invasive surgical techniques, including robotic surgery, and is excited about the advancement of immunotherapy for cancer treatment.

“I firmly believe that as physicians, we should always treat the patient, not the disease,” says Dr. May. “My goal is to treat each patient with kindness, dignity and respect and to provide prompt, compassionate and thoughtful care.”

Dr. May received a Bachelor of Arts degree in business management at St. Mary’s College of California in Moraga, California. She then earned a Bachelor of Arts degree in chemistry from Sonoma State University in Rohnert Park, California.

Outside of CTCA, Dr. May enjoys spending time with her husband and daughter. Together they are avid equestrians. They breed, train and show warmblood hunter/jumper horses and ponies. When not at work or in the barn, Dr. May is most likely to be found in the kitchen experimenting with new culinary recipes.

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.
