Upon first meeting Dr. Paloyan, I found him to be very direct and abrupt. That soon changed. He is treating my father for a second time with recurring cancer. He treated my brother and today, my sister was diagnosed and has requested him as her Oncologist. If you want a doctor that sugar coats and dances around the hard facts, Dr. Paloyan is not your man. If you want a doctor that gives it straight and honest and then does everything in his medical power to eradicate your cancer, call him immediately! I am so very thankful our family found him. He does care. He does have compassion. But most importantly, he focuses on each patient's medical needs. That is what an Oncologist is supposed to do!

I really had no idea how ill I was until my very first meeting with Dr. Paloyan. He evaluated my situation right then and there and I was immediately given an Infusion and along with my husband was brought up to date on my condition. He was there every step of the way and I trust him to help me make the right decisions. Excellent physician (in my estimation). I would and do highly recommend Dr.Paloyan.

I’m a Coast Guard spouse and several years before moving to MI my oncologist put me through the ringer w/ CT, PET and blood draws and could never provide any answers. One visit w/ Dr. P and he diagnosed me, knowledge is what any patient should desire from their physician. Upon meeting him he may not have the best bed side manner at first but he does care about your outcome, he familiarizes himself with your treatment and wants a successful outcome. Would recommend him to anyone.

I find Dr. Paloyan to be very knowledgeable, and am confident as his patient that I'm in good hands. He's very direct and honest, which isn't always easy to hear, but also compassionate and supportive. IMO, if you're looking for a great oncologist, and a doctor who'll genuinely advocate for you, there's no one better in the region.

Would never recomend this doctor for anything. Rude, belligerent, abrupt, unfeeling of any person's fears. He scared us by telling us if my husband didn't do as the doctor said my husband would die-no other explanation. This doctor ruined our Christmas holiday-my husband couldn't sleep or eat-he was a nervous wreck. We have heard of the same attitude this doctor has had with many other patients. We will never go back to him. Fortunately, we found an excellent doctor who is compassionate.

Dr. Paloyan is rude and has horrible bedside manners. If I should have to return I would much rather see any other provider besides him. I wouldn't recommend him to anyone!
