Doctor Carcas is professional, kind, knowledgeable, trustworthy, caring, resourceful and dependable. She's a terrific listener who takes the necessary time to explain difficult concepts so they're easy to understand without condescension. She surrounds herself with staff that share the same qualities and who are the best at what they do. Having cancer treatment has been the hardest thing I've ever done, but Dr. Carcas and her staff have gone out of their way to make sure I receive the best care.

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!

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. 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.
