Evan Pisick, MD, believes it’s important for cancer patients and their loved ones to learn as much as they can about the disease. The medical oncologist talks with his patients about their diagnosis and treatment and encourages them to ask questions. He analyzes each patient’s test results, takes detailed notes on their medical history and performs thorough physical examinations. These are some of the critical steps he must take in order to determine the most appropriate treatment options for each of his patients.Board certified in medical oncology and hematology, Dr. Pisick practiced medical oncology and hematology with DuPage Medical Group in Naperville, Illinois, before joining Cancer Treatment Centers of America® (CTCA) in 2008.

After completing a bachelor’s degree in biology at the University of Rochester, he earned a medical degree from Boston University. Thereafter, Dr. Pisick completed an internship and residency at Mount Sinai Medical Center in New York City, followed by a fellowship at Tufts Medical Center in Boston.

Dr. Pisick has researched and written extensively on small cell and non-small lung cancer, as well as malignant mesothelioma. His work has been published in a variety of scientific journals, including Hematology/Oncology Clinics of North America, Anticancer Research and the Journal of Experimental Therapeutics and Oncology. Early in his career, Dr. Pisick was a research technician at the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute.

He has been a member of both the Association of Pathology Chairs Pathology Honor Society and Alpha Omega Alpha, a national honor society for medical students.

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.

"I have recommended Dr. Pisick numerous times. He is really smart and uses plain language to discuss the cancer, treatment and side effects and how to manage all of it. Some seem interested in seeing scans and other test results but he is so thorough and listens and responds to questions so well that I have not felt a need to look at any of the tests or scans. I feel fortunate to have someone who is smart and personally engaged."
