I consider Dr. Nair, as one of the best Doctor, that I've the pleasure of meeting with. And, he's great for helping me keeping up with my Blood count, and to make sure, that My Cancer, hasn't came back. He's a wonderful Doctor! I only have to see him once a year. ????

I would not recommend this Dr. to nobody! When he was doing chemo on my dad he told him any information like results of bloodwork and scans. The whole time it was spreading and he never said anything. No other treatment options, 7 months later he said the only thing he could do was continue same treatment. We went to CTCA in Tulsa and got 2nd opinion and they did 2 different treatments that targeted the cancer and worked. All this Dr. told him is he will die in a few months. Alive 2 1/2 yrs
