What People Say About Dr. Ashok Muniappan, MD
Reply
Rude - doesn't listen - more concern for his convenience that patients' Technical ability - I'm still here, so no questions on this end. Would not recommend because of his attitude. Must be others equally competent.

Best of the best! Our initial appointment with Dr. Muniappan was to seek a second opinion for my Dad's lung cancer diagnosis. Upon meeting with Dr. M we knew right away we had found the perfect surgeon. His diagnosis was right on and his treatment plan made a perfect sense. He gave every effort to try VATS first so his elderly patient could benefit from this minimal invasive surgery. He operated more than six hours yet still made time to meet with us afterwards. Nicest doctor,truly amazing!
