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.
