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 occurance. 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.

"Dr. Redei's comments about my difficulties finding work after treatment didn't help."

"i'd very much liked my doctor but sometimes I end up waiting over an hour to see him. Hi fly out for check ups and sometimes don't seem to get checked out very well that I think why can I just stay home and get the blood work done. They need to take the time to check me out and explain things more. I do feel that my Dr is very good and I do trust him just a little more time spent with me would be preferred."
