Fadi Makdesi,




I believe that it is important to take time to listen to my patients because it helps me to better understand what they are going through and personalize a treatment plan.

About Me

In January 2020, Dr. Fadi Makdesi joined City of Hope in Phoenix, Arizona. As a Hospitalist, Dr. Makdesi provides care for patients requiring hospitalization for medical issues that may have interrupted cancer treatment. He is dedicated to exploring available treatment options to help patients safely resume their cancer treatment. “My goal is to help patients feel better and then transition out of the hospital and back to their lives,” says Dr. Makdesi.

At City of Hope, Dr. Makdesi evaluates and treats inpatients at the hospital who may be suffering from injury, illness or treatment complications. He helps coordinate patients’ general care and sees that their medical needs are continually met. Dr. Makdesi keeps patients and their families informed throughout the treatment journey.

“At City of Hope, we truly listen to patients and work collaboratively as a team,” says Dr. Makdesi. “Working in one central location, the multidisciplinary team has the opportunity to discuss our patients daily and work together to positively impact their treatment plan.”

Dr. Makdesi earned a medical degree from Damascus University in Damascus, Syria. He completed a residency in internal medicine at University of Tennessee, College of Medicine in Chattanooga, Tennessee.

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.
