Dr. Revathi Suppiah is a Medical Oncologist who believes in the patient-centered care model at Cancer Treatment Centers of America ® (CTCA). “I like that conventional medical care is provided alongside nutritional support and integrative medicine.”

Dr. Suppiah graduated from medical school in the top 5 percent of her class at Sri Ramachandra Medical College and Research Institute in Chennai, India. After completing her residencies at University of Missouri-Columbia School of Medicine and Sinai-Grace Hospital/Wayne State University, Dr. Suppiah began her fellowship at the Cleveland Clinic.

One of Dr. Suppiah’s favorite things about working at CTCA® is that patient care is truly the focus. She also enjoys working with a team of doctors and clinicians to provide a multi-disciplinary approach to cancer care. “As a team, we discuss every patient, every morning, and we work together to develop recommendations to best help our patients.”

Dr. Suppiah is board certified in hematology, oncology and internal medicine by the American Board of Internal Medicine. She is also a member of the American Society of Clinical Oncology. Dr. Suppiah is a core member of the group of physicians who make up the Lung Cancer Center at CTCA Chicago. In this role, she, along with other members of the lung team, focuses on helping patients diagnosed with lung cancer find treatment options that are appropriate for their type of cancer. In addition to her work in the Lung Center, Dr. Suppiah also works with patients facing other types of cancer. 

Throughout her career, she has co-authored numerous publications, as well as contributed to the books Washington Manual of Oncology and Clinical Malignant Hematology.

Dr. Suppiah believes in the importance of whole-person cancer care. “Cancer affects the entire body – physically and emotionally. The approach that is taken at CTCA offers patients optimal care medically, nutritionally and psychologically. Patients are treated with standard approaches, innovative medical techniques, as well as emotional support. This truly helps the patient undergo treatments and improve quality of life.”

Dr. Suppiah lives in Chicago with her husband and two young children.

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 occurrence. 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.
