When you or a loved one receives a cancer diagnosis, one comfort to count on when taking the next step toward treatment is confidence in your oncology team. Knowing you have community-based support from oncology experts and treatment specialists within a reputable, certified oncology practice who are ready to help you in your fight against cancer can make all the difference in your treatment experience.

Choice Cancer Care develops individualized cancer treatment plans that offer hope and support to patients when they need it most. Its mission to is to provide individualized, whole-person care to patients, which is core to its patient-centered model of care. With locations throughout North Texas, Choice Cancer Care has been certified through the QOPI Certification Program (QCP), an affiliate of the American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO). By choosing a practice that is currently certified by QCP, you can rest assured the practice is committed to delivering the highest quality of cancer care. Choice Cancer Care’s parent company, Cancer Treatment Centers of America, has been a trusted, patient-first expert and leader in cancer care for more than 30 years. CTCA is accredited by all major national quality organizations, including The Joint Commission, the Commission on Cancer, the Quality Oncology Practice Initiative (QOPI) the American College of Radiation (ACR) and National Accreditation Program for Breast Centers (NAPBC). CTCA is nationally recognized leader in patient satisfaction and quality with many of locations and programs receiving high marks from Becker’s Hospital Review, Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, Press Ganey, and U.S. News and World Report.

Choice Cancer Care teams rally around their patients, delivering compassionate, comprehensive, evidence-based care with board certified specialty trained physicians who have extensive experience in the management of early, advanced-stage and complex adult cancers. “Our crew is innovative and takes a collaborative approach in each patient’s care,” says Dr. Raetasha Dabney, a board-certified oncologist with Choice Cancer Care. “We don’t mind pushing the envelope and trying new things.”

Among the many overwhelming aspects of a cancer diagnosis is the coordination of treatment. This is one of numerous areas where Choice Cancer Care excels. Instead of patients going from appointment to appointment to meet specialist after specialist, Choice Cancer Care coordinates each patient’s treatment, and all providers work together so the process is as seamless and convenient as possible. Most appointments take place in a single location. In network with the majority of insurance plans, Choice Cancer Care has become an industry leader in patient satisfaction, and a primary reason for this is its coordinated approach to care that combines surgery, radiation, chemotherapy, immunotherapy and advancements in precision medicine, with supportive therapies designed to manage side effects and enhance quality of life during treatment and into survivorship.

Because of Choice Cancer Care’s affiliation with CTCA, patients also have access to the latest clinical trials as part of the center’s commitment to providing new and innovative cancer treatment options. Among the advantages:

Clinical leaders guide national research efforts and serve as principal investigators on numerous clinical trials. Their collective backgrounds include thousands of published articles, editorials, peer-reviewed manuscripts, and abstracts.

The clinical research teams continually evaluates new research opportunities, allowing Choice Cancer Care to enroll and serve patients with a range of cancer types.

“Our mission is to provide individualized, whole-person care to our patients.”

Through established relationships with exclusive research networks and pharmaceutical

companies, Choice Cancer Care has early access to many revolutionary clinical trials and investigative therapies.

When it comes to cancer treatment, Choice Cancer Care remains an industry leader in the community. It is among the busiest practices in the country for brachytherapy, or prostate seed implant therapy—a cancer treatment plan for prostate cancer that provides remarkable success rates and fewer life-limiting side effects. The team of doctors and oncologists also specialize in highly sophisticated methods of chemotherapy and radiation therapy, including MammoSite therapy, which offers low cancer recurrence rates and improved cosmetic outcomes for breast cancer patients. In addition, Choice Cancer Care offers an on-site PET/CT scanner, intensity-modulated radiation therapy (IMRT), image-guided radiation therapy (IGRT), and stereotactic radiation therapy—both intracranial (brain) and extracranial (body).

Choice Cancer Care has quickly and effectively responded to the COVID-19 crisis, offering virtual telemedicine visits for patients who prefer to confer with their doctors from the comfort of home. Should they need to visit a Choice Cancer Care location for a consultation or treatment, each practice location has taken every safety precaution, going above and beyond the latest protocols to ensure patient safety and peace of mind. The team also understands that patients with cancer can experience anxiety and don’t want to wait to see a specialist. Therefore, each location offers next-day appointments, an added measure of care for those newly diagnosed with cancer who want expert advice and a game plan as soon as possible.

Successful cancer treatment plan is more than just science. At Choice Cancer Care centers, oncology experts take the time to learn about each patient’s unique situation. They encourage patients and their family members to ask questions and seek a better understanding. The caring team is committed to treating cancer patients with compassion and providing the support they need throughout their cancer treatment.
