Dr. Kamal Patel joined Cancer Treatment Centers of America ® (CTCA) after serving as chief radiation oncology resident at Oregon Health & Science University hospitals in Portland. While there, he garnered the Rose Award for Excellence in Patient Care.

Dr. Patel completed his internship in family practice at Mount Sinai Hospital in Chicago. He obtained his medical degree from the Chicago Medical School, where he also earned a master’s of science degree in applied physiology. Prior to that, he received a bachelor’s degree in biology from the University of Iowa.

In addition, Dr. Patel gained extensive knowledge of brachytherapy for patients with prostate cancer at the Seattle Prostate Institute.

At our hospital, Dr. Patel serves as Medical Director of Radiation Oncology, meeting with many cancer patients for whom radiation therapy may be a treatment option. He thoroughly reviews each patient’s medical history, imaging reports (e.g., CT scans, PET/CT scans, MRIs) and performs extensive examinations. These are critical steps he makes to help him formulate treatment recommendations for each patient.

An advocate of patient empowerment and education, Dr. Patel believes it’s important for patients to learn as much as they can about their disease. He takes time to talk with them in great detail about their diagnosis and treatment, and answer any questions.

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.
