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 Topolsky and [...] are the best. We have seen other oncologists at other facilities who have been good doctors, but these two doctors take the time to give thorough explanations and realistic expectations. They never make us feel rushed. We recommend CTCA to everyone. As a former healthcare provider, I think CTCA operates extremely efficiently and wish more facilities would follow your medical model."

"This was the first time that I had the pleasure of meeting Dr. Topolski, since [...] left. I have to be honest, because that is the only way I can be - I did not like his presence - or his appearance. The way he kept me waiting - his clothing was like that of a patient - his beard needs to be trimmed - his physical medical examination was less then 2 minutes - and I did not like his personality. Sorry, I left there hoping that next time, I have someone different."
