Dr. Mohapatra's Care Philosophy

Cancer is a scary time in a patient's life, and for that of the entire family and community. I believe in giving patients all of the possible treatment options so that they can make the most informed and educated decision about the care they wish to receive. Waiting to be diagnosed can be a lengthy process, and so waiting for treatment can be challenging. We make an effort to get the patient treated in a timely manner so that they aren't waiting around, realizing that there are certain tests we do need to do before we can begin any treatment. Through education, and a partnership with the patient and their family, and listening to the patient and their wishes, we strive to provide the best care at Washington Cancer Institute.

in Indian Head, MD |
Initially when I first met Dr. Mohapatra, I was a little hesitant about having her as my doctor due to her age. However, after my first visit I was very pleased with her thoroughness and knowledge as an oncologist. I would definitely recommend my family and friends to her because she was able to give me that special comfort and added knowledge to assist me with my medical issues.

My mom was a patient if Dr. Mohapatra. Did not have a good repor at all with the patient or the patient family. Poor communication about the patient health. And treat who was battling stage 4 Lung cancer. Long period of wait time to see the doctor. Basically did not treat the patient due to lack of communication. About treatment options and managing patient symptoms. No concern about the patient needs or illness while suffering from cancer. Overall horrible experience and disappointed.
in Washington, DC |
On my first meeting with Dr; Mohapatra I found her to be warm, friendly and most importantly to me; truthful. I left her office feeling that she was very knowledgeable in her field and that she indeed would be helpful to me. There was calmness in place of anxiety; M.L.Dixon.
