As a Naturopathic Oncology Provider, Edra Spevack’s goal is to provide patients with personalized integrative care that respects each patient’s unique needs and choices.
“I strive to educate patients about healthy lifestyle approaches that support their body’s self-healing capacity as well as improve their quality of life,” says Spevack, who joined Cancer Treatment Centers of America® (CTCA), Atlanta, in 2013.
Spevack brings to CTCA® over 15 years of experience practicing naturopathic medicine along with a background in research, education and program development. Spevack enjoys the collaborative approach to patient care at CTCA and is appreciates being able to connect with patients and support them through their healing process. “I feel privileged to work with patients through their challenges and help them make profound changes in their life,” Spevack says.
She received her Doctorate of Naturopathic Medicine in 2002, followed by post-graduate education in advanced botanical medicine. In 2014, Spevack completed a fellowship of the American Board of Naturopathic Oncology. Today, she is an active member of the Oncology Association of Naturopathic Physicians. Along with serving as an assistant professor at the Canadian College of Naturopathic Medicine, her work has been published in Integrative Medicine: A Clinicians Journal and in materials published by the American Society of Clinical Oncology.
Since joining CTCA Atlanta in 2013, Dr. Spevack developed the naturopathic medical portion of the first integrative surgery recovery program. She is dedicated to supporting her patients, helping them tolerate their treatments and providing guidance on the safe consumption of nutraceuticals. “Along with providing nutraceutical guidance, I strive to educate patients about healthy lifestyle choices that support their body’s self-healing capacity and improve their quality of life,” says Spevack, who maintains a longstanding interest in integrative medicine. Along with patient care, she is committed to research, education, and program development.
Patient ratings and comments
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. Following industry best practice, star ratings and comments are only published for physicians with a minimum of 30 completed patient surveys.
