“The patient-centered approach at Cancer Treatment Centers of America® (CTCA) is truly unique and special. Having all the specialties and supportive staff under one roof is like nothing I’ve ever seen before,” says Dr. Shahin Chowdhury, medical oncologist at CTCA® Atlanta.

Dr. Chowdhury earned a Doctor of Osteopathic Medicine degree from Kansas City University of Medicine and Biosciences in Kansas City, Missouri. He then completed an internal medicine internship and residency at Genesys Regional Medical Center in Grand Blanc, Missouri.

He earned a bachelor’s degree in biology from Dana College in Blair, Nebraska, where he graduated magna cum laude. He also earned another bachelor’s degree in physician assistant studies from Wichita State University in Wichita, Kansas.

Before joining CTCA, Dr. Chowdhury spent five years as a staff hospitalist in Rowlett, Texas. He then moved to Tulsa in 2011 to complete a medical oncology fellowship at CTCA Tulsa (through Oklahoma State University), where he was Chief Fellow in his last year.

In July 2013, Dr. Chowdhury officially started working as a medical oncologist at our hospital in Tulsa. The following year, he joined CTCA in Atlanta. His areas of focus are gastrointestinal and genitourinary cancers.

Since joining CTCA, he says: “At CTCA, I am able to coordinate appointments and ideas with other physicians who are all available under one roof. There have been multiple times where I’ve had a question or needed assistance, and everyone I need to speak with is available to assist me when needed. Most importantly, having everyone under one roof enables us to deliver integrated services and provide answers to patients quickly.”

Dr. Chowdhury belongs to several professional organizations, including the American Society of Clinical Oncology, the American Osteopathic Association and the American College of Osteopathic Internists.

Dr. Chowdhury is an avid soccer player and fan, and enjoys hiking, sightseeing and wildlife. He and his wife, Farrah, a pharmacist, have 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. 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.
