“The passion and dedication of the staff here was apparent from my first visit,” says Dr. Jordana Jaffee, Chief of Medicine and Internal Medicine Physician at Cancer Treatment Centers of America® (CTCA), Phoenix. “It is a privilege to work with such accomplished providers.”Born and raised in New York City, Dr. Jaffee attended Barnard College at Columbia University, where she earned her Bachelor of Arts in Psychology. She completed her Doctor of Medicine degree at Cornell Medical College in 1996.
During her medical training, she was awarded both the David P. Barr Summer Fellowship, which she dedicated to pediatric cardiology research, and the Cornell Alumni Association Overseas Fellowship, providing medical care to underserved rural communities in South Africa.
Her postgraduate training included an internship and residency in Internal Medicine at the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania. She remained at this institution after completing her residency, becoming Clinical Instructor and Hospitalist with the Department of Internal Medicine.
From 2000 to 2004, Dr. Jaffee served as Clinical Assistant Professor at New York University Medical College, providing primary care and attending as a Hospitalist with the Internal Medicine inpatient service. Later, as Medical Director at Summit Commons Nursing Home in Rhode Island, Dr. Jaffee supervised a large staff of physicians and oversaw patient care. She spent nine years as a General Internist with a large medical practice in Rhode Island, during which time she had an academic appointment at Brown University Medical College. In her practice, she provided medical care in a busy setting while also forwarding initiatives focused on the quality of care. Driven by her wish to provide excellent patient-centered care, Dr. Jaffee later became a concierge personal physician focused on prevention and treatment of chronic and acute illnesses, also incorporating wellness and counseling services. Accessible to her patients around the clock, Dr. Jaffee provided highly individualized care.
Dr. Jaffee now brings her expertise and focus on patient-centered care to CTCA®, which she joined in August 2015. “CTCA is dedicated to delivering the best care science has to offer while never losing sight of the personal needs of the individual patient,” she says.
When she is not caring for patients, Dr. Jaffee enjoys spending time with her husband, who is also a physician, their four children, and a mini-schnauzer named Atticus. She also plays tennis, hikes and loves getting lost in a good book.
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.
