Dr. Cortas isn't just a hematology oncologist, she is a caring, compassionate professional who always put me (and my husband) at ease. Her treatment plan for my tonsil cancer was rigorous and effective, and she described what to expect. When Dr. Cortas gave me her cell phone number, I had no clue that she really would answer if I needed her, but she did! My appointments were thorough and as scheduled. I was first diagnosed in mid March of 2014 and here I am cancer-free for three years!

I am a 2 time cancer survivor and my 2nd battle I saw Dr Tania Cortas. I am very impressed with her patience and care for me while going thru treatment. I get to see Dr Cortas every 3rd Wednesday for Maintenance chemo and have blood work checked. Feel very fortunate I met Dr Tania Cortas she really did save my life ?? Kym Holloway Phoenix AZ

She has been my oncologist for 5 yrs and is responsible for my survival and quality of life. I could not recommend her more strongly. She has always been open and clear about her treatment and I could not be happier. I strongly recommend her to everyone.

Excellent physician with empathy and sincerity for curing patients. Positive attitude. Very well educated, but also deals in reality on each patient. Available, punctual, and a please to have her treat me.

I was in my early 30s with two young children when I was diagnosed with stage 4 of a rare & aggressive type of cancer. Dr. Cortas and the entire staff was very compassionate, professional, personable and made me completely comfortable with the treatment plan. I am now in remission and have no doubt it is because of the care I received from Dr. Cortas and her amazing team. I would absolutely recommend her without hesitation.

My name is Charles Cornish and Dr. Cortas has been my doctor since I was first diagnosed with multiple myeloma in 2012. From the very beginning she had developed a plan for my recovery and presented it to me in a comforting, understanding way that put me at ease. Her positive attitude went a long way in helping me deal with the procedures I was going to have to go through. Now I still go in every quarter for blood work and when I see Jordana , her PA, Dr.Cortas will still stop in to check on me

When I was diagnosed I was very anxious. My appointment with Dr Cortas at Arizona Oncology was scheduled within 24 hours. The staff was very supportive and Dr Cortas team put me at ease. The doctor spent about 2 hours explaining to me the disease and treatment steps. This eased my anxiety. She was very supportive throughout the process. She helped my family and i cope with all the changes that we were facing!! We love her! Thank you for all you do!

Dr. Cortas is not only professional but very knowledgeable. I would highly recommend her. She is very caring about my medical needs and answers all my questions to my satisfaction.

Dr. Cortas takes care of my mother who has breast cancer. She was diagnosed last September. Dr. Cortas saw her within 24 hours of her diagnosis. My mom was extremely anxious and nervous about this diagnosis as we did not know what to expect. Dr. Cortas was very knowledgeable and immediately made her feel at ease. She guided her through this very confusing process. Within 1 week she had her in to see the surgeon and radiation oncologist. Dr. Cortas is wonderful!
in Scottsdale, AZ |
Absolutely the worst doctor! She treats everyone like a number. She is rude, inpatient, not knowledgeable and shows no commitment at all. She has even contradicted herself on a few occasions. Average wait time for her in the little waiting room was over 45-minutes! DO NOT SEND YOUR LOVED ONES TO DR. CORTAS!! Wish I could give her a zero!
