As a Physician Assistant at Cancer Treatment Centers of America® (CTCA) in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, Rebecca Leese serves patients as part of the hospital’s multidisciplinary team of breast cancer experts. She joined CTCA® in November 2017 and is dedicated to treating patients with all stages of cancer.

Leese works closely with a team of dedicated doctors and clinicians to provide whole-person care. She sees patients returning for cancer surveillance visits, as well as patients in active treatment receiving chemotherapy, immunotherapy and targeted therapy. Leese provides symptom and side effect support through the course of treatment and survivorship.

“I want my patients to know that I am willing to help in any way possible, and I try to take as much time as needed to inform and answer questions,” says Leese. “I also acknowledge the importance of my patients’ emotional, mental and spiritual needs. I strive to help my patients maintain an optimal quality of life while going through cancer treatment.”

Leese is board-certified by the National Commission on Certification of Physician Assistants (NCCPA). She has been in practice for 12 years and has experience in endocrinology, oncology and orthopedics.

Leese completed a Bachelor of Science degree in biobehavioral health from Pennsylvania State University in State College, Pennsylvania. She earned a Master of Health Science degree in Physician Assistant Studies in Lock Haven University of Pennsylvania in Lock Haven, Pennsylvania.

Outside of CTCA, Leese likes spending time with her friends and family. She enjoys traveling and travel photography. Leese stays active by doing yoga, bike riding, ballroom dancing and hiking.

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.
