“As a team of clinicians working together, we can help patients feel as comfortable and ready as possible for their treatment and any accompanying lifestyle changes,” says Dr. Jay Trambadia, Clinical Psychologist at Cancer Treatment Centers of America® (CTCA), Atlanta. “Together, we provide a safe and empathetic environment.”
Dr. Trambadia earned his Bachelor of Science in Psychology at the University of Georgia in Athens in 2007. He completed his Master of Science in Clinical Psychology in 2009 and then his Doctor of Psychology in Clinical Psychology in 2012, both at Nova Southeastern University in Fort Lauderdale, Florida.
As part of his training, Trambadia was a trainee at large medical centers in Florida from 2009 to 2010. He then completed an internship at Broward General Medical Center in Fort Lauderdale, providing psychological services to patients and families in several clinical units.
From 2012 to 2014, he was a post-doctoral fellow in Clinical Psychology and a clinical associate at Duke University Medical Center in Durham, North Carolina. There, he evaluated and diagnosed patients with medical and primary psychiatric disorders, provided short- and long-term psychotherapy, and conducted biofeedback and psychophysiological treatments for individuals coping with chronic pain and stress. He joined CTCA® in July 2014.
At CTCA, Trambadia works with patients to develop effective coping skills for stress and other concerns. He also assists patients in making healthy lifestyle choices and overcoming any fears and anxieties they may be experiencing.
“Many patients are facing a complete change of lifestyle,” says Trambadia. “My goal is for patients to be aware of this change and develop the skills they need to deal with this adjustment, and to provide a safe environment for patients and their loved ones to discuss whatever they need to.”
Trambadia is licensed by the state of Georgia and has specialized training in smoking cessation, insomnia, crisis intervention and opioid use. A dedicated researcher, Trambadia has published and presented numerous studies on pain management and other areas of clinical psychology. He is a part-time instructor at Georgia State University.
Trambadia is a member of the American Psychological Association and the Georgia Psychological Association. He has devoted hours of volunteer service to disaster relief, the Boys & Girls Club of America, American Red Cross and March of Dimes.
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.
