Anatomic Pathology & Clinical Pathology - American Board of Pathology

In December 2019, Dr. Deepa Bassi joined Cancer Treatment Centers of America® (CTCA) as a Pathologist. Board certified in anatomic pathology and clinical pathology, Dr. Bassi is dedicated to providing accurate cancer diagnoses. At CTCA®, she works with a multidisciplinary team and analyzes test results to help recommend appropriate cancer treatments.

At the Phoenix hospital, Dr. Bassi works in the pathology laboratory to evaluate, diagnose and review laboratory tests and tissue samples. Dr. Bassi definitively diagnoses disease (or lack thereof) when either a biopsy or surgical resection is removed from a patient at CTCA. Test results help the care team diagnose and stage cancer, plan treatments, monitor the disease, review treatment progress and track patient health.

“In my role as a pathologist, I work behind the scenes and serve as a guiding hand for the surgeons and oncologists,” says Dr. Bassi. “During surgery, I am responsible for commenting on the adequacy of the material obtained, the clearance of the tumor with negative margins and accurate diagnosis. Identifying and classifying disease is a vital component of the CTCA multidisciplinary approach to patient care.”

Dr. Bassi received a medical degree and a post-graduate degree in pathology from Kasturba Medical College in Manipal, India. Following her graduation, she moved to the United States and completed her first year in anatomic and clinical pathology residency at William Beaumont Hospital in Royal Oak, Michigan. Dr. Bassi completed her residency in pathology at New York Presbyterian Hospital/Columbia Presbyterian Hospital in New York, New York, then completed a fellowship in surgical pathology at the same hospital.

Throughout her career, Dr. Bassi has been published in several research publications and provided presentations on her work. She is an active member of professional organizations, including the American Society for Clinical Pathology, American Medical Association and College of American Pathologists.

In addition to her work, Dr. Bassi is passionate about cooking, traveling and hiking. She also enjoys spending quality time with her family.

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.
