Review of Dr. Shaheen

-Terre Haute, IN |

I am writing this response to Dr. Shaheen so others know he saved my life while he practiced in Indiana. I am a stage 4 rectal cancer survivor of over 11 years now thanks to him. He treated me with the best available chemo at the time, coordinated radiation and aligned the best surgeons available. If that were not enough he coordinated my care after it metastasized into my lung the following year. To you Dr. Shaheen I am grateful for my life. 3 weddings, 4 grandchildren, 40 years of marriage!

Review of Dr. Russell

- in Binghamton, NY |

I was a patient of Dr. Russell for almost 3 years. He is the best Dr by far, I will never forget that whenever I was hospitalized he would be at my bedside every day at 7am checking how I was doing. He always made desicions with me and fully involved me in my care. He is a Dr. that trully care for his patients, and don't see them as insurance claims, now days he still see me and say hello at the hallways of UNMH.

Review of Dr. Libby

- in Encinitas, CA |

He was not prepared, wait time was over 10 yours when he realized he did not have key lab information for the therapy. He did not apologize. He refused to send lab results in his chart to my primary physician. He and his staff were very difficult.

Review of Dr. Ravindranathan

-San Diego, CA |

You never imagine the day will come when you will face your biggest fear and find out that your spouse has cancer. It was the worst time in my life. But Dr. Meera was honestly a gift. I could never express how much she has meant to us. Dr. Ravindranathan was kind, informative, caring, thoughtful and calming. We instantly felt we were in the best hands and with a Dr. who would care about us. She always takes her time and answers all of our questions thoroughly. We are forever grateful for her.

Review of Dr. Tarnower

-Albuquerque, NM |

This Dr missed two very important factors in my breast cancer care, risking my life. Blasse attitude. Very uncomfortable with emotional reactions.

Dr. R has a difficult job in giving news that is often difficult to hear. I appreciate her support in ushering me through life-changing health concerns.
