About Us

Cancer Care & Treatment in Texas

Southlake Oncology, a Choice Cancer Care Treatment Center, located in the Southlake and Grapevine area, is a community-focused oncology practice that delivers exceptional care to North Texas cancer patients with a variety of cancer diagnoses and blood disorders. Like the other Choice Cancer Care facilities, we are an independent treatment center that is physician-owned. As such, we have been able to build treatment centers that are in line with our unique patient care model; facilities that are completely committed to providing integrated cancer therapies that speak to the health of the whole person.

This whole-patient approach to cancer care, allows us to create a comprehensive treatment plan that takes into account everything from the patient’s diagnosis and stage of cancer to their overall health, lifestyle, and support system. Exceptional therapy to treat the cancer itself is a part of a comprehensive plan to deliver the patient to a place of wellbeing. In addition to traditional medical care, this may include alternative therapies, nutritional guidance, and emotional support. Whatever our patient needs to be successful, whatever is most comfortable for them, and whatever works for their particular needs is what we help to create with them. At Southlake Oncology, we surround our patients and their families with a team of experts, dedicated to providing them with the support they need throughout their journey to good health.

Our team includes expert oncologists, oncology nurses, nutritionists, and more. To us, our patients are more than a diagnosis and a name; they are a face, they are a person. And we take the time to get to know our patients and their families so that we can provide them with the most personal and compassionate support through this challenging time.

This personalized care, along with a commitment to providing the most cutting-edge cancer therapies available today, has allowed us to earn the trust of those facing cancer in the greater North Texas area. And we are honored to accompany them on this journey.

This approach is why we’re your choice for compassionate care.

Whole Patient Care

“Every day, there is something new and exciting happening in cancer treatment,” says Dr. Gregory Echt, board-certified oncologist and founder of Southlake Oncology. “As professionals dedicated to providing our patients with the most advanced cancer care, we are always thrilled to be able to introduce people to the newest developments in oncology and to successful treatments they may have not considered. We provide this state-of-the-art treatment in a comfortable, welcoming, warm environment where our patients are completely supported.”

Our History

Leading radiation oncologist, Dr. Gregory Echt, began his practice in 1989 with a desire to provide North Texas cancer patients with world-class – and personalized – treatment. He opened his first clinic with a commitment to looking beyond the diagnosis and providing care that took the whole patient into account – from their overall health to their lifestyle – so that the care he provided was respectful of individual needs. This level of respect, combined with compassionate, supportive care within a state-of-the-art environment where an investment was made in the latest technology, defined the overall treatment philosophy of Dr. Echt and his treatment facility.

Over the years, Dr. Echt has built an outstanding reputation in the community as a physician who goes above and beyond for his patients. And, as his practice expanded, Dr. Echt brought on board physicians that share his passion for the highest level of care to cancer patients. Some of the most talented specialists in their field including Dr. Neeraja Dasari, Dr. Kiran Kancharla, and Dr. James Mackey joined with Dr. Echt to create a truly diverse team with rich experience in treating a variety of malignancies.

Today, the Choice Cancer Care team – including oncology certified nurses, physicists, radiation technologists, and dosimentrists – encompasses a variety of cancer care facilities including Southlake Oncology. The foundation on which Dr. Echt’s first practice was built – to provide cancer patients with access to the most sophisticated treatment available within an environment that is completely focused on their comfort and success – still exists today throughout all the Choice Cancer Care facilities.

Leadership Matters

The compassion and respect with which our patients are treated starts at the top. We are committed as a team to being at the forefront of cancer care, just as we are committed to being at the forefront of patient care. We consider it a privilege to work with our patients and their families and we do so with a focus on total patient care and comfort. That means creating individualized treatment plans that address the patient’s diagnosis as well as their personal needs. The only way to do this is to get to know our patients on a personal level. Approaching care from a personal relationship allows us to best counsel our patients on a plan that will work best for their life. Our patients have trusted us to provide them with the best care during a difficult time and we take this trust very seriously.

Whether you are facing breast cancer, prostate cancer, lung cancer, or any other malignancy, you will find the compassion and respect you deserve here at Southlake Oncology, as well as a team of cancer care professionals who are ready to lead you through treatment and on to better health.
