Cancer Treatment Centers of America® (CTCA) "is patient-focused and makes the welfare of each patient its top priority,” says Dr. Pamela Crilley, Chair, Department of Medical Oncology at CTCA®. In July 2011, Dr. Crilley joined the team of cancer treatment experts at our hospital in Philadelphia, where she serves as a Hematologist-Oncologist and Medical Oncologist. She says the integrated, team approach to caring for cancer patients has proven to be a unique and exciting opportunity.

“My approach to patient care is first to listen to the patient, and then to try to provide hope, compassion and an innovative, evidence-based treatment plan with input from our team,” she adds. “And, I empower patients to make decisions in their care.”

Dr. Crilley is board certified in medical oncology and internal medicine. She earned an osteopathic medical degree from the Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine. Dr. Crilley completed an internship and internal medicine residency at Delaware Valley Medical Center in Bristol, Pennsylvania. She then completed a hematology-oncology fellowship at Hahnemann University in Philadelphia, where she served as Chief Fellow.

Before studying medicine, Dr. Crilley received a bachelor’s degree in English literature from Temple University.

Dr. Crilley has held multiple academic and administrative positions at Drexel University College of Medicine/Hahnemann University Hospital, including as Division Chief and Clinical Service Chief of Hematology/Medical Oncology. She also served on several committees at Hahnemann University Hospital.

Dr. Crilley has been a featured physician in Best Doctors in America (Best Doctors, Inc.) and a recipient of the Battafarano Award for Excellence in Clinical Care.

Her research and work have been published extensively in the American Journal of Hematology, Journal of Clinical Oncology, Blood and other clinical journals. Additionally, she has served as an editorial board member for the American Journal of Clinical Oncology. She has also presented on breast cancer, acute leukemia and bone marrow transplantation at numerous clinical conferences.

Dr. Crilley belongs to several professional associations, including the American Society of Clinical Oncology, American Society of Hematology and the American Society for Blood and Marrow Transplantation.

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.
