“The patient-centered approach to care is what drew me here,” says Dr. Saima Saeed, Medical Oncologist and Hematologist at Cancer Treatment Centers of America® (CTCA). “Here we treat the patient as a whole person, not just the disease.”
In October 2018, Dr. Saeed joined CTCA® at the Scottsdale Outpatient Care Center in Arizona. Dr. Saeed evaluates and treats patients with various types of cancer and strives to provide comprehensive and personalized care. Dr. Saeed is committed to taking as much time as her patients need to understand their treatment options.
“My goal is for all CTCA patients to receive compassionate and comprehensive cancer treatment,” says Dr. Saeed. “I want my patients to leave their visit with a complete understanding of their treatment options. I want them to feel comfortable asking questions and for them to know that they are in a space where they can share their concerns.” Dr. Saeed is committed to empowering her patients and their families with knowledge and involving them in the treatment decision-making process.

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.
