Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Matei "Rocky Mountain Cancer Centers began in the early 1990s as a small group practice of six physicians with a new approach to treating cancer-administering chemotherapy on an outpatient basis. RMCC has since developed into a premier oncology network in Colorado and administering chemotherapy on an outpatient basis is now the norm. RMCC is Colorado's largest and most comprehensive provider of cancer care with more than 55 physicians who treat patients in 20 locations throughout the state. From the latest in radiation technology to nationally recognized psychosocial support programs, RMCC provides the most advanced care, along with the healing power of love, to patients with all types of cancers and blood disorders."

Patient Comments (6)
Colorado Springs, CO |
Dr. Matei was on-call on the oncology ward the day after my sister started chemotherapy for Stage IV pancreatic cancer. She told my sister, whom she had never met before, that this chemo was just "to buy her some more time." Studies have shown that hope increases a cancer patients' longevity as well as their quality of life. A doctor who chooses to diminish the hope of a patient they don't know and have never interacted with is an inexcusable breach of the oath that a doctor must do no harm.
Colorado Springs, CO |
Dr. Matei was unprepared for our first visit, spent less than 5 minutes with us, and provided incorrect and misleading information. I indicated that I had questions, which she refused to answer stating verbatim, "I don't have time." She made rude comments about my loved one's appearance telling him he looked awful. At our last visit, she shamed him for asking about hospice and not being able to eat but told him, "there is nothing I can do for you." I strongly advise seeking help elsewhere.

Dr. Matei is my oncologist. The best one I have been to since my diagnosis back in 2011. She is wonderful!

Excellent. Seeing an Oncologist is not a pleasant thing. Dr. Matei is your partner in the treatment process and she wants to ensure you're getting the right course of treatment for your condition. She is very, very good at what she does.
in Colorado Springs, CO |
Dr. Matei is amazing. She cares very much about the health and welfare of her patients, you can see it. She is a straight shooter than wants you to understand all of the risks and concerns of your treatment and condition. We appreciate her candor very much and wish more doctors were like her. We highly recommend anyone who needs a top-level oncologist to see her.
