Dr. Raman Battish is the Medical Director of Gastroenterology at Cancer Treatment Centers of America® (CTCA) in Philadelphia.

Prior to joining CTCA®, Dr. Battish worked as an interventional endoscopist at a hospital in Philadelphia, and as a Clinical Assistant Professor at Drexel University College of Medicine.

Dr. Battish earned a medical degree from Jefferson Medical College in Philadelphia. Following medical school, he completed an internal medicine residency at Jefferson University Hospital. His perspective on cancer care was forever changed by his mother's personal battle with cancer during his medical training.

He then completed a three-year fellowship in Gastroenterology from Washington Hospital Center in Washington, DC, followed by a year-long fellowship in Advanced Endoscopy at the University of California, Los Angeles. Dr. Battish and his wife returned to the Philadelphia area to be closer to family.

Dr. Battish holds a Bachelor of Science in Biochemistry from the University of Delaware in Newark, DE. He subsequently completed a Post-Baccalaureate Special Science Program at the University of Pennsylvania, during which time he also served as a Clinical Research Coordinator at the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania.

Dr. Battish is a Diplomate in both Gastroenterology and Internal Medicine. He has contributed to numerous medical publications and abstracts. He is a member of the American Gastroenterological Association, the American Society for Gastrointestinal Endoscopy, and the American College of Gastroenterology.

Dr. Battish lives with his wife, an oncology nurse practitioner, and daughters in Philadelphia. He and his family enjoy living in the city and having access to cultural events.

Patient ratings
Star ratings and comments are only available for medical, radiation and gynecologic oncologists. Gynecologic surgical offerings are not included at this time due to a different survey tool required to evaluate these services. CTCA uses a validated Press Ganey® survey, which captures patient experience feedback for the primary oncology services of chemotherapy and radiation therapy at our comprehensive care and research centers. Following industry best practice, star ratings and comments are only published for physicians with a minimum of 30 completed patient surveys.
