Chitra Rajagopal, M.D., and her staff are literally life savers! I was diagnosed earlier this year with stage 3B cancer. Dr. Raj and her team have helped me get through this difficult time with their expertise and kindness. I feel very blessed that they are on my "team."

Grateful for Dr. Rajagopal and Her Staff – Feb 21, 2020

Raj is the most sensitive and compassionite oncologist. She gets her point across in a very empathetic yet reasonable manner. I wanted to stop chemo after the 4th cycle but she worked with me and talked it through but always stood her ground. I completed the 5th and 6th rounds as well as all the radiation over 16 years ago, which I completely attribute to Raj's will to make it happen!

Wonderful and magical. Dr. Rajgopal has been taking care of my medical issues and without her I will not survive my issues. I really enjoy the staff in her office as they seem to realize that you are another human being which is great. Thanks Dr. Raj for your continued wonderful support.

Hello Dr. Rajagopal, I really appreciate the visit I had with you on August 10. My friend, Jan and I are really interested in receiving more information on the procedure and treatment you recommend to treat my kind of uterine cancer. I will be calling your office, Monday morning, to schedule an appointment with you to further discuss treatment. I can visit you in Olney or in Rockville. I am placing a call to Dr. Steren's office. I need medical advise based on my recent surgery. Lois Vuolo

Dr Rajagopal and her staff are excellent. She is a genuinely caring professional who works tirelessly for her patients. She treated my wife for her lymphoma and, when I was diagnosed with polycythemia by my primary care physician, I became her patient as well. In my case I require monthly blood work by her staff. At this point, Dr Rajagopal's staff is like family to us. I cannot recommend her any more highly. Great care by wonderfully compassionate people.

Dr. Raj first gave me a general overview of why things happen as they do, then explained in detail my specific situation. She made me fee comfortable and answered all my questions. Best part...she gave me a hug when I left. You don't get that kind of caring and compassion very often in the medical field these days.
