Dr. Herbert H. Beck, III, brings over 30 years of experience to Cancer Treatment Centers of America ® (CTCA), Chicago, as a gynecologic oncologist. Dr. Beck earned his medical degree from Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine after completing his undergrad in sociology from Princeton University. He completed an internship and residency in obstetrics and gynecology from Northwestern University before going on to complete a fellowship in gynecologic oncology from Loyola University Medical Center Affiliated Hospitals.

Dr. Beck sees the relationship between a doctor and a patient as a true partnership.

“The patient is the main driver of our care at CTCA®. I feel the physician should first discuss the treatment options with the patient, then proceed together with a mutually agreeable plan to treat the cancer,” says Dr. Beck.

In addition to being a full member of the Society of Gynecologic Oncology, Dr. Beck is also a member of the Illinois State Medical Society, Chicago Medical Society and the American College of Obstetrics and Gynecologists.

Dr. Beck is board certified in obstetrics, gynecology and gynecologic oncology, and has been honored three times by Chicago Magazine as a Chicago-Area Top Doctor for gynecologic oncology. In his free time, he enjoys reading, hiking and exercising.

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. 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.
