I went to Dr. Kamat on March 12, after being told by my regular gynecologist that he definitely saw cancer. One biopsy by her came back benign and the other extensive VIN III, which can indicate invasive cancer. SHE DIDN'T DO ANY STANDARD SCANS OR TESTING BEFORE SURGERY, WHICH WOULD HAVE VERIFIED METASTASIS. SHE DIDN'T OPERATE UNTIL 7/9, FOUR FULL MONTHS after I initially visited her. Per the surgical pathology I had multi focal invasive squamous cell carcinoma. Only then did she order a PET/CT scan which showed one lymph node suspicious of inflammmation, one node suspicious of cancer. I had to find an oncologist at Sugar Land Methodist to order the core biopsy of the pelvic node. Haven't seen Dr. Kamat since surgery on 7/9, and haven't heard from her for 2 weeks. That's why you ALWAYS do all scans BEFORE surgery - to biopsy regional lymph nodes and know whether to biopsy during surgery or at LEAST do a sentinel node biopsy. FIVE FULL MONTHS AND SHE STILL DOESN'T KNOW IF IT'S SPREAD!!!

Dr Kamat is a very skilled surgeon. I wish that I could give her more than 5 stars. I was referred to her so that she could remove my fibroids. Dr. Kamat removed 32 fibroids and was able to save my uterus. She and her team closely monitored and took great care of me. When I was discharged home, I never took any pain medicine at all because I didn’t need it, and I credit that to Dr. Kamat. My family couldn’t believe how independent I was so soon after having major surgery. I am very glad that I chose Dr. Kamat to be my surgeon.

Dr. Kamat told me "this cancer is curable" and 8 years later I am still cancer free. She is warm, caring ,and is excellent at explaining treatments I highly recommend her.
