For Dr. Cynthia Lynch, Medical Oncologist at Cancer Treatment Centers of America® (CTCA), the range of services was proof of a commitment to exceptional care. “The array of options ensures that each patient and caregiver has access to whatever they need,” says Dr. Lynch.

After earning her Bachelor of Science in Nursing at Mansfield University, Dr. Lynch decided to continue her training. She completed post-Baccalaureate coursework at Bryn Mawr College and attended MCP – Hahnemann School of Medicine, completing her Doctor of Medicine degree in 2001. She was a resident in Internal Medicine at Cleveland Clinic Florida. Deciding to specialize in cancer care, Dr. Lynch completed a three-year fellowship in Hematology/Oncology at East Carolina University/Brody School of Medicine.

Dr. Lynch began her medical career as a hospitalist at a regional hospital in Florida. She became medical oncologist with the Breast Program at East Carolina University – Brody School of Medicine, where she led several clinical trials focused on breast cancer and gynecologic malignancies. As Lead Medical Oncologist for the Breast Program at Guthrie Clinic, she spearheaded several clinical trials to advance breast cancer treatment. In addition to clinical care, her work has addressed important concerns in cancer care including racial disparities in medicine and barriers to clinical trial enrollment.

Licensed to practice medicine by the State of Arizona, Dr. Lynch is Board Certified in Hematology & Medical Oncology by the American Board of Internal Medicine. During her career, she's been recognized many times as one of Castle Connolly's Top Doctors®, most recently in 2021. 

Dr. Lynch joined CTCA® in September 2015. In addition to caring for patients, she enjoys reading, running and spending time with her husband and their four children. 

 

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.
