Dr. Rupani is patient and explains things thoroughly if asked. Although he is very busy he returns calls and takes the time to listen. He has a personal passion for oncology and a pure desire to help cancer patients.

Wait times are extremely long. The office is very outdated with technology. The doctor can be very late to your scheduled appointment so leave yourself a two hour time slot for these appointments.

I wasn't happy leaving this office. I felt laughed at and my concerns were dismissed. It's a new and ongoing pain that has me worried. The doctor made me feel stupid for asking about it. I don't plan to return. I was told I'd receive a referral for a specialist in the mail, too, and never did.

Dr Chen is way too nonchalant about mesh removal and neurectomy risk. He is brash and he’s neurectomy is very aggressive (triple) it will be downplayed. If you have surgery especially mesh removal you will be a subject of his experiment.

Dr. Kabeer performed the NUSS procedure on our son, Blake on July 26, 2017 and the bar was removed on October 24, 2019. He is an amazing surgeon and our son is doing great and is back playing basketball, surfing and weight lifting. We are so grateful that Dr. Kabeer was our son’s surgeon.
