I was refferred to Dr. Botnick and The Center for Radiation Therapy by Dr. Noam Drazen as the place to go for radiation treatmen. It is a very well run facility, easy parking with close easy access to the Building. It is quiet and non anxious making, unlike having to go to a huge medical center. This is important as radiation therapy requires a daily visit for a four weeks. The daily visits are well scheduled and wait time is none or very little. I would definitely reccomend Dr.Botcick.

Margot Thomas in Los Angeles Ca – Feb 08, 2018
Dr. Botnick is the all star MVP of Doctors. This Doctor saved my life and treated me back to good health after being diagnosed with aggressive breast cancer. He is very kind, respectful, and has a lot of patience to explain everything to the patient. I will forever be grateful for the utmost dedication I received from Dr. Botnick and his lovely staff while undergoing a very challenging time in my life. Thank you for making a difficult situation free of fear and strength for an amazing future.

Super Survivor in Los Angeles, CA – Nov 07, 2016
I was referred to Dr. Botnick after a diagnosis of prostate cancer. After studying the pros and cons of radiation and surgery, I chose radiation from the Center for Radiation Therapy. Treatment consisted of 40 sessions over 8 weeks and was completed one year ago. Dr. Botnick and his staff were unfailingly helpful and courteous. After one year so far so good.

Fred M. in Los Angeles, CA – Apr 04, 2016
Dr. Botnick is the most knowledgeable, caring and dedicated doctor I know. I work with a lot of doctors as well as see many as a patient so I feel confident to make such a statement. I trust him implicitly in his area of expertise and in the referals he makes to other specialties. I frequently refer patients who need to Dr. Botnick so they too can benefit from his tremendous expertise. His office staff is caring, competent and efficient, working hard to see that the patients get the care...

Dr. Botnick is the kind of doctor who will take as much time as you need, explain everything and follow up to make sure things are going smoothly. I've been seeing him since 2007 and I know that he is 100% there for me. I would recommend him highly and completely trust his opinion.

L. Moncada in Los Angeles, CA – Jan 26, 2016
I can't recommend Dr Botnick and his team highly enough!!. He has treated and followed me over 23 years since I was first diagnosed with breast cancer. Dr. Botnick is brilliant and thorough in gathering the medical information that he needs to plan radiation care or follow up. He communicates with all the members of the treatment team after each visit to coordinate care. He is also caring and truly listens to my concerns and answers my questions in an honest way. Dr. Botnick is a TOP DOCTOR!!
