Dr Popatia is an excellent oncologist. He treats me like I’m a family member not a patient. All of his staff treat me and the other patients I’ve met the same way he does. They always have a smile and a kind word for everyone. Sandra Cook

Dr Popatia is able to take the terror out of cancer. I wouldn't have thought that was possible if i hadn't experienced it myself in 2001. I was referred to him by the surgeon that performed my double mastectomy. We went into his office in a fog due to my breast cancer diagnosis. We intended to tell him that we were going to get a second opinion before moving forward with any treatment option. However, when this warm and caring Doctor came out to the waiting room himself to escort me, my husband and i knew we were exactly where we needed to be and exactly who we needed to be with. He guided me through chemo and the aftercare regimen with knowledge and compassion. He seem to take on the weight of the process lightening our load all the while. Then again in 2011, I needed his expertise when i was diagnosed with colon cancer. He hadn't changed a bit and continued to provide the best and most up to date treatment options and successfully administered chemo with warmth and care.

My husband was diagnosed with Stage 4 lung cancer in August. We were referred to Dr. Popatia by our PCP. We have been so pleased with his plan for my husband’s treatments. He finished Chemo in December, 2019 and started Immunotherapy in January, 2020. He will be on Immunotherapy every 3 weeks for the rest of his life. Going to Dr. Popatia’s office is like visiting with friends. They are all so helpful and take so much stress off of me, the caregiver, by making all the appointments for scans or anything that the Doctor orders for him. They explain things very well to us. They answer all of our questions. I hate to see anyone develop cancer, but I would highly recommend Dr. Popatia and his office staff to anyone that has to go through that journey. Wish I could give them 10 stars!

Dr. Popatia has been treating my mother for 30 years for breast cancer which metastasized to her liver--WITHOUT EVER USING CHEMOTHERAPY.. She has been cancer free for the last 12 years but now it has reappeared and for the first time in 30 years Dr. Popatia has prescribed chemotherapy. Mother is 93 years old and has responded to the chemo beautifully. He is truly a blessing to our family and we will be eternally grateful for his compassion and dedication.

Dr Popatia has been very attentive through my treatments and handles himself in a professional manner. His goal and purpose since meeting me on day 1 was/is my overall care and healing. He made it clear that he was available and accessible at any time day or night and that made me feel very comforted!I His nurses are so friendly and patient and I always look forward to being welcomed by them when I arrive for my treatments. They definitely help to ease any anxiety that I may have.

In a time when you and your family are scared and have lots of questions and anxieties, he walks you through the process, step by step, with great detail and attentiveness. Just couldn't recommend him more highly! Very personalized program of customized care.
