Texas Oncology-San Antonio Hosts Congressman Greg Casar (D-TX)


On Wednesday, April 3, Texas Oncology hosted Rep. Congressman Greg Casar (D-TX) for a visit at their Downtown San Antonio practice. Dr. Allyson Harroff, Regional Medical Director, was joined by brenda Elmendorf, Practice Administrator, Natasha Pacilio-Kidder, Nurse Manager, Becky Jorgensen, Director Practice Operations, and Amber Castillo, Regional Nurse Manager.

During the visit, Congressman Casar was able to learn about the value of community oncology, site-of-service payment disparities, and the role Texas Oncology plays in the community of San Antonio. He was also able to learn about the value based care initiatives that deliver high quality care to patients in the San Antonio area.

Congressman Casar represents the 35th District of Texas, which includes downtown San Antonio and up I-35 including parts of New Braunfels, Kyle, and southeast Austin. Rep. Casar is in his first term in Congress and serves on the House Committee on Oversight & Accountability as well as the House Committee on Agriculture.
