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.

"Dr Redei, Dr [...] and Nurse Navigator [...]l are in our opinion some of the finest medical staff we have ever met. They were a so professional and went out of their way to make sure we understood everything that was going on and my wife and I believe we chose the best place for treatment. Our confidence in this staff is 100%. We don't feel good about being diagnosed with cancer, but we feel we are receiving the best treatment possible. I have already been telling people I know that this is the place to go if you have cancer "
