The integrative approach to cancer treatment is what attracted Medical Oncologist and Hematologist Dr. Sagun Shrestha to Cancer Treatment Centers of America® (CTCA).

“I liked the holistic approach and the teamwork at CTCA®,” says Dr. Shrestha. “When I saw what we do here, it was a big draw. We spend as much time as needed with each patient, and we use nutrition and other integrative oncology services to help with every aspect of cancer treatment.”

Dr. Shrestha treats a number of malignancies, with a particular focus on breast cancer. She works with a team of cancer experts, including a nurse, nutritionist, naturopath and care manager, to develop an ongoing treatment plan for each patient she treats. She says this level of care wouldn’t be possible without a team effort. Her goal is to help her patients and their families make informed decisions about cancer treatment. She lives the Mother Standard® of care, providing her patients with information and support.

Dr. Shrestha, who is board certified, earned a medical degree from Maulana Azad Medical College in New Delhi, India. She was Chief Medical Resident at the Jamaica Hospital Medical Center in Jamaica, New York and Chief Fellow in the Division of Hematology-Oncology at the Long Island Jewish Medical Center, Albert Einstein College of Medicine in New Hyde Park, New York.

She is a member of the American Society of Clinical Oncology, American Society of Hematology and American College of Physicians, and has been recognized as a top doctor in medical oncology by Castle Connolly many times, most recently in 2021. Currently, she serves as an Adjunct Clinical Assistant Professor in the Department of Internal Medicine at Oklahoma State University College of Osteopathic Medicine in Tulsa, Oklahoma, and also serves on the Adjunct Faculty in the Department of Internal Medicine at Arkansas College of Osteopathic Medicine in Fort Smith, Arkansas. Passionate about her career and her family, Dr. Shrestha is married to a physician and has two sons.

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 including comments directed at hospital COVID-19 policies and procedures. 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.
