O. Carl Simonton (born 29 June 1942 in Los Angeles, died 18 June 2009 Agoura Hills) [1][2] was a specialist in radiology and oncology.

He founded and directed the Simonton Cancer Center (SCC) in Malibu (USA) and was one of the pioneers of psycho-oncology. For over 30 years he has worked with cancer patients who wanted to actively support their recovery process. Key elements of his philosophy and techniques have an impact on the practical consulting work in the psycho-oncology in the United States, Europe and Japan. The effect of the Simonton method has been proven in scientific studies.[1]
