A patient is not just a disease. We are not just treating cancer. We are treating a person and using every tool possible to improve length and quality of life.

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.

"I think that the communication about total treatment and tests needed could be better. I found out about addional procedures needs through a scheduler and not a doc. Some test results are posted prior to a doc calling and in my case changed the course of treatment. I have medical knowledge so I understood the result but this should never happen. This focused early in my treament and not my last visit"

"I met her for the first time - really did not have a followup visit - which I personally think was a mistake. She saw me for the first time this visit and did an intake interview but all my procedures were post meeting her so I received no explanation of any results. I STRONGLY feel a phone call consult should have been scheduled just like you schedule our visits to come. Never got a phone call from her or the PA - that was disappointing. Dr. Farrington seemed pleasant enough and I look forward to working with her - but not huge amount of communication. Which honestly, was a bit of a problem since immediately after my [...] they sent me to a CT scan and then told us to leave with no explanation of what is going on. I realized that the [...] needed to be sent to the Pathology as well as the CT scan but there definitely was a lack of follow up - and as a cancer survivor being told that we found something rare and unusual you are a little concerned as to what exactly does that mean."
