In May 2019, Dr. Robert Galamaga joined Cancer Treatment Centers of America® (CTCA) at the Outpatient Care Center in North Phoenix, Arizona. The center offers medical consultations, chemotherapy, immunotherapy and supportive care services in an outpatient setting, delivered by a team of experts who work closely with one another to understand each patient’s individual diagnosis and needs.

As a Medical Oncologist at CTCA®, Dr. Galamaga evaluates and treats patients with various types and stages of cancer. He works with each patient to decide on a personalized treatment plan and collaborates with a multidisciplinary care team to implement it. Dr. Galamaga is excited about the advances in immunotherapy to harness the ability of the immune system and precise genomic analysis of cancers to evaluate for the potential use of targeted therapies. He also has a special interest in treating disorders of coagulation and thrombosis, anemia, platelet disorders, leukemias and lymphomas.

“I take as much time as needed to see that my patients have a thorough understanding of their cancer and treatment options,” says Dr. Galamaga. “My overall goal for my patients is to fight the cancer while focusing on maintaining or improving their quality of life throughout the cancer journey.”

Dr. Galamaga received a bachelor’s degree in cellular and molecular biology from Tulane University in New Orleans, Louisiana. He earned an osteopathic medical degree from Lake Erie College of Osteopathic Medicine in Erie, Pennsylvania, then completed an internal medicine residency at University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign in Urbana, Illinois. He completed a fellowship in transfusion medicine and blood banking at the University of Illinois at Chicago in Chicago, Illinois, and went on to complete a fellowship in hematology/oncology at Advocate Lutheran General Hospital in Park Ridge, Illinois

Board certified in internal medicine, hematology and medical oncology, Dr. Galamaga has an interest in clinical research. He is a member of several professional organizations, including the American Society of Hematology, American Society of Clinical Oncology, American Association of Blood Banks, American Society of Public Administration and American Telemedicine Association.

Dr. Galamaga appreciates spending time with his wife, friends and family. He enjoys traveling, running and playing soccer.

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.
