Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Palaniappan "I strive to provide compassionate, quality cancer care to my patients with the latest treatment options available, education and through clinical research. My role in caring for the patient is achieved with a combination of applying science and what the patient wants to achieve their goals. Seeing the resiliency of my patients, their fight, their struggle, and how they continue to maintain their families while being treated for cancer, motivates me to work even harder in providing the best possible care in order for them to achieve their goals"

Patient Comments (5)

Dr. Geetha is a.compassionate, caring doctor who is knowledgeable, agressive and uses a team approach to coordinating what is best for her patients. She is ALL about getting the best care for her patients even it means refering patients to another specialist. She listens to her patients and encourages them to call her at anytime! I truly trust her recommendations for the treatment plans she prescribes for my husband. This is his second round with cancer and we are glad to have her as his doctor

Dr. Geetha is not only my Dr. but friend. I was hospitalized almost 4 years ago for a colon surgery and she would visit me in the hospital. She would tell me she was my cheerleader to get better. I live three hours away and she is definitely worth the drive for my appointments. She is the sweetest person and explains things very well to me about my CLL. Thanks for all you do Dr. Geetha!!

I love Dr. Geetha. She doesn't force medical procedures that will inevitably prove to be futile, allowing for the dignity of the dying to shine through.
