Dr. Toufic Kachaamy joined Cancer Treatment Centers of America® (CTCA), Phoenix, in July, 2013. As a gastroenterologist trained in advanced endoscopy, including endoscopic ultrasound, he helps care for patients fighting pancreatic, stomach, esophageal, colon, liver or bile duct cancer at our Phoenix hospital.
Dr. Kachaamy shares the same passion towards patient care that CTCA® embraces. “Here, the multidisciplinary team approach is the norm, and not the exception. All the physicians and clinicians meet on a regular basis to discuss the best treatment plan for each patient,” says Dr. Kachaamy. “To me, the collaboration among providers is critical in providing whole-person care.”
Board certified by the American Board of Internal Medicine, Dr. Kachaamy earned a medical degree from the American University of Beirut in Lebanon. He then went on to complete an internship in internal medicine at Duke University in Durham, North Carolina. Additionally, he completed a fellowship in gastroenterology at Virginia Commonwealth University in Richmond Virginia. Most recently, Dr. Kachaamy completed an advanced endoscopy fellowship at Mayo Clinic in Phoenix. He is also a member of Alpha Omega Alpha Honor Medical Society.
Dr. Kachaamy’s research has been published in Gastrointestinal Endoscopy, expert reviews of Gastroenterology and Hepatology, and Clinical Gastroenterology and Hepatology and Current Opinion in Gastroenterology. He has also given many research and oral presentations in national meetings on topics related to digestive health.
Dr. Kachaamy believes in one objective: Providing the best possible care to the patient in a compassionate way. “I tell my patients, if it can be done, we will do it.”
In his spare time, Dr. Kachaamy enjoys traveling and learning about new cultures. He also enjoys spending time with his family, cooking and skiing.
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.
