    I am very happy a friend referred me to Dr. Carcas. Other oncologist in the area seemed "rushed" and not as engaged as she is. She has helped me better understand my disease and all my options.

    Dr. Carcas is a very caring, competent physician. She made me feel so comfortable as a new patient. She is so compassionate. I would recommend her to anyone looking for an oncologist. As a cancer patient, I could not recommend anyone more highly.

    Dr. Lauren Carcas is an amazing oncologist and I would highly recommend her to anyone seeking excellent and compassionate care & treatment for breast cancer. She is at the top of her game with cutting-edge knowledge about breast cancer and is skilled in delivering the information in a way that is easily understood. I never once felt rushed during the many visits I made to her office, and she was always so thorough and made me feel like my breast cancer case was extremely important to her.
    Dr. Carcas was and is very personable doctor. She always made me feel like i was just as important as she would treat her family. She was truly invested in my case, not only is she kind, but she is through, consistent & hard working. She is extremely knowledgable and I always felt taken care of. Her passion for what she does is so evident, I am so thankful that she was my doctor throughout my cancer journey.
