“The patient-centered approach to care is what drew me here,” says Dr. Ioana Bonta, Medical Oncologist at Cancer Treatment Centers of America® (CTCA), Atlanta. “We are able to treat the patient as a whole person, not as a disease.”

Dr. Bonta joined CTCA® in September 2014. At CTCA, she provides care, conducts research and works on clinical trials. She is particularly focused on genitourinary cancers, which include cancers of the urinary tract, bladder, kidneys, prostate, testicles and penis.

Dr. Bonta also treats thoracic cancer, which includes tumors in the lungs and chest. She incorporates the latest advances into her therapeutic recommendations and works with patients to create individually tailored treatment plans. 

Originally from Romania, Dr. Bonta completed her Doctor of Medicine at Carol Davila University of Medicine and Pharmacy in Bucharest in 1996. She was an intern in General Medicine at Vadu Lat Hospital in Giurgiu, Romania, from 1996 to 1997. She then had a residency in Emergency Medicine at University Hospital in Bucharest from 1997 to 1999.

Dr. Bonta came to the United States in 2000 to join the Carl J. Vyborny Translational Laboratory for Breast Imaging Research at the University of Chicago, where she worked until 2006. She completed residencies in Internal Medicine at Michael Reese Hospital from 2006 to 2008 and at Saint Joseph Hospital from 2008 to 2009. Both hospitals are in Chicago.

Following her residencies, Dr. Bonta was hospitalist at a large regional hospital in the Atlanta area. From 2011 to 2014, she pursued further training in hematology and oncology, completing fellowships at Boston University and Emory University in Atlanta. While at Boston University, she served as acting Chief Fellow and continued her research work. She has published several papers and holds two patents in medical research.

Dr. Bonta is certified in Internal Medicine and Medical Oncology by the American Board of Internal Medicine. She is licensed to practice medicine through the States of Georgia, Massachusetts and Illinois.

“Each patient has the right to decide how to live and what treatment to pursue,” says Dr. Bonta. “We will be there to help every step of the way.”

Outside of CTCA, Dr. Bonta enjoys spending time with her husband, a nuclear medicine physician, and their four children.

Patient ratings and comments

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.

About our ratings Load More Comments

Press Ganey Data Integrity Certified

About our star ratings

The patient star ratings are an average of all responses to physician-related questions on our nationally recognized Press Ganey Patient Satisfaction Survey.

Cancer Treatment Centers of America® (CTCA) measures patient satisfaction as part of our effort toward continuous improvement in all aspects of the patient experience. We partner with Press Ganey®, a third-party-validated organization with over 30 years of experience supporting over 26,000 health care organizations, to survey our patients about their recent experiences at CTCA®.

Why is this information important?

CTCA is committed to transparency. Not only do the surveys allow us to continuously improve our services, but we hope these ratings will help you feel confident in your decision to seek care at CTCA.

How are the star scores calculated?

All eligible CTCA patients receive a survey from Press Ganey within one to two weeks after their treatment occurrence. In addition to being asked about their overall experience at CTCA, patients are asked to score the level of confidence they have in their provider, as well as the likelihood they will recommend the physician to others. Raw data from the answers to the survey questions about our physicians are calculated by Press Ganey into a one- to five-star rating, with one star being the lowest possible rating and five stars being the highest.

Are all comments included?

In the spirit of transparency, all patient comments are posted as written by the patient, whether they are positive or negative. Patients’ names and other identifying information are removed from the comments for confidentiality and patient privacy. We only exclude comments if they are deemed to be slanderous or libelous, contain profanity or vulgar language, do not relate to the patient’s experience with the doctor involved, or are statements that cannot be verified as factual. 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. All ratings are included even if a comment is excluded.

Why don’t all physicians have ratings and comments?

Following industry best practice, star ratings and comments are only published for physicians with a minimum of 30 completed patient surveys. This helps us ensure that the sample size is large enough to give you an accurate representation of the physician's care.

Star ratings and comments are not available for all physicians or specialties. The validated Press Ganey survey captures patient experience feedback with the primary oncology services of chemotherapy and radiation therapy, which include only medical, radiation and in-office gynecologic oncology services. Gynecologic surgeries are not evaluated at this time because a different survey tool would be required.

Can anyone provide ratings and responses for a physician?

No. Only patients who are under the care of the physician can provide a response through the Press Ganey survey. Eligible patients receive the survey either by mail or email after their treatment occurrence. Survey responses are completely voluntary.

How do you protect patient information for those who have responded to the survey?

Patient privacy is of the utmost importance to us. If a review comment includes any information that could identify a patient (e.g., name, etc.), it is removed from the comment prior to publishing on the physician’s bio page. All patient information that has been removed from a comment is designated with an ellipsis, or “[…]”.

How often are the scores updated?

Press Ganey surveys are sent out all year long. All patient ratings and reviews are regularly updated and published within a month of receiving the responses. Ratings and reviews remain on a physician’s bio page for one year after being published. After that time period, the ratings and reviews older than a year are removed to ensure the most current information is available.
