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.
