Top Cancer Hospitals in America

In generations past, trust in doctors was implicit. You went to the doctor nearest you and followed his or her orders unquestioningly. Over time though, we came to realize that doctors are only human. And like all humans, they make mistakes and have different specific talents. With this realization, we began to demand more choice when it comes to our healthcare providers. And thanks to Vitals, we’re now able to search for and find a doctor based on the criteria that matters most to us – leading to better quality of care.

Vitals helps you choose the right doctor – and hospital – for you.

But when you are diagnosed with a chronic illness like cancer, it’s not just the doctor treating you that matters; the hospital your doctor is affiliated with is where you’ll spend a lot of time undergoing diagnostic tests, receiving treatment, and being cared for by a team of specialists other than the doctor you chose. Just as Vitals provides patients with the criteria they need to find the doctor who’s right for them, we also have Group Practice and Hospital Profile Pages where you can see all of the doctors associated with those facilities, along with awards they’ve won, their overall patient rating, and the average wait time.
