About Me

Dr. Tami Carrillo joined City of Hope in July 2019. As an Interventional Radiologist at the Chicago hospital, Dr. Carrillo uses imaging to guide the diagnosis and treatment of cancer with minimally invasive techniques. She works closely with patients to offer a wide range of treatment options to address the patient’s cancer and personal needs.

By using minimally invasive and innovative techniques, Dr. Carrillo helps to reduce risk and improve quality of life for patients. In addition, she uses recent advances in interventional radiology, including irreversible electroporation, radioembolization, chemoembolization, cryoablation, radiofrequency ablation and vertebroplasty, to help reduce postoperative pain and improve recovery.

“My goal is for patients to feel uniquely cared for and respected,” says Dr. Carrillo. “I want my patients to feel they are receiving quality care and that they are informed and educated regarding their disease.”

Dr. Carrillo received a Bachelor of Arts degree in biology from Evangel University in Springfield, Missouri. She earned a Master of Urban Planning and Public Policy from the University of Illinois Chicago College of Urban Planning and Public Affairs in Chicago, Illinois, and a Doctor of Medicine degree from the University of Illinois College of Medicine in Chicago, Illinois. She then completed an internship in internal medicine at Loyola University Health System in Maywood, Illinois, and a residency in diagnostic radiology and a fellowship in vascular and interventional radiology at the University of Illinois Chicago Hospital in Chicago, Illinois.

Licensed in the states of Illinois and Wisconsin, Dr. Carrillo has an interest in clinical research and has contributed to several published articles and presentations. She is a member of many professional organizations, including the Society of Interventional Radiology, Radiological Society of North America, American College of Radiology and American Medical Association.

Outside of City of Hope, Dr. Carrillo likes spending time with her husband, three children and two stepchildren. She enjoys exercising, reading, writing and cooking. She is also active in her church, attending and volunteering whenever possible.

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.
