CTCA Chicago and Iowa Cancer Specialists coordinate continuity of care via telemedicine, so patients remain close to home as often as possible. CTCA Chicago’s Evan Pisick, MD, Genitourinary Medical Oncology Clinical Advisor, Chief of Medical Oncology; Chevon Rariy, MD, endocrinologist, Medical Director of Endocrinology, and Telehealth Program Director; together with a clinical team at ICS led by Susannah Friemel, MD, have teamed up to launch the new coordinated cancer care alliance.

This collaboration focuses on taking a patient from diagnosis to the development of a personalized treatment plan typically within 3-4 business days and incorporates the convenience of telemedicine to minimize the patient’s need to travel for treatment.

Iowa Cancer Specialists opened for business in 1986 and is the only independent Oncology clinic in the Quad Cities which treats complex medical conditions such as cancer and benign blood disorders. Our approach focuses on providing evidence-based medicine that is combined with supportive services designed to enhance quality of life while managing side effects during and after treatment.
