Dr. Carcas not only attended to my medical situation but she took the time and personal interest to get to know me and my family which was/is one of the most important factors in the healing process for cancer patients. Because of Dr. Carcas and the team of doctors that she referred me to, my cancer treatments were easy and stress free. I did not miss a day of work. I cannot express my gratitude enough to Dr. Carcas for all she does for her patients and their families. Best oncologist in SoFlo!

There aren't enough adjectives to describe this phenomenal doctor. I got tired of being just a number at one of the larger cancer institutes and one of her patients recommended Dr. Carcas. Before my first visit was over, I knew I was going to receive the best care money can buy. My family and I are forever indebted for the compassion and care you are providing me. Thank you!
Ft Lauderdale, FL |
Never found or seen a better Oncologist than her. I left a large hospital group just to see her. Truly authentic, & knowledgeable. Her treatment plan for me worked out great. Thank you Dr. C.!!
Ft Lauderdale, FL |
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.

She is a very personable and gives you all the time you need to answer your questions and actually takes the time to talk to you on the phone.

A wonderful doctor who helped my wife enormously with her compassion, skills and friendship. Fully compliments the brilliant Doctor Tan Chiu at Florida Cancer Care to ensure the very best and outstanding care.
in Cooper City, FL |
She's very thorough. Excellent grasp and knowledge of her specialty. I've met with 3 other Oncologists in the area. Dr Carcas is the best.

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.
