Rachel Raab, MD

Dr. Rachel Raab joined Dr. Messino in practice at Cancer Care of WNC in June 2015. She is dedicated to providing the most advanced cancer therapies, utilizing state-of-the-art clinical trials, and focused on providing personal and individualized care to each patient.  Dr. Raab is passionate about sharing her knowledge and partnering with her patients in Western North Carolina as they navigate through the care process.

She listens and she is very thorough. I came here from another practice where the doctor made me feel foolish for asking questions. It's nice not to have to worry about that here. Dr. Raab is very understanding.
