Dr. Chad Amosson Joins Texas Oncology in Arlington

July 03, 2019

We recently welcomed Dr. Chad Amosson to the Texas Oncology team. Dr. Amosson is now seeing patients at Texas Oncology–Arlington Cancer Center North and Texas Oncology–Arlington South, and we talked with him to learn more about his passions and his career.

What excites you about joining an organization like Texas Oncology?

I joined Texas Oncology because it is a large group of like-minded doctors with the same focus as me: to provide patients with an excellent option to fight cancer.  Advanced equipment, knowledgeable doctors, and caring staff are potent weapons to use in that fight. Texas Oncology offers the high-quality care for my patients while allowing them to stay close to family. 

What are you most looking forward to as cancer treatment continues to evolve and why?

As cancer treatment evolves and improves, I look forward to the individual fights and victories. Our patients fight for their lives, hoping one of these discoveries will make a difference in their disease. I look forward to giving less bad news and more good news. I look forward to more hope, more smiles, and more hugs.

Working as a radiation oncologist has shown me that the human spirit can rise above any obstacle. It is amazing to see what a positive attitude and motivation can accomplish. I have seen patients beat the odds. Radiation treatment can be tough, but not as tough as the human spirit.”

What has working with cancer patients over the course of your career taught you about resiliency in the human spirit?

Working as a radiation oncologist has shown me that the human spirit can rise above any obstacle. It is amazing to see what a positive attitude and motivation can accomplish. I have seen patients beat the odds. Radiation treatment can be tough, but not as tough as the human spirit.

What are you regularly tuning into right now and why?

I play classic rock on the guitar very poorly. I listen to audiobooks on my daily commute, a variety of classics and new releases. My favorite book is Catch-22. On TV, I like Jeopardy, the Dallas Cowboys, the Texas Rangers, and the Incredible Dog Challenge a little too much. 

What is the No.1 thing you want your patients to know about you and why?

I believe it is those precious little moments when you make a difference, make someone smile, or go the extra mile for someone that add up to a life well-lived.
