Despite great weight loss over several months, severe incontinence for months and pain in back, we were told by Doctor "It can't be recurrence of cancer, is a gut issue, maybe back spasms". This was 5 days before I took my brother to ER because he was so weak and ER said his body was riddled with cancer and he was terminal. He died 2 weeks later.

I have been a patient at Dr. Ninan's office for approximately 5 years. I have seen Dr. Ninan 3 or 4 times (who is great), but most of the time, I have been under the care of Jessica George. Jessica takes fantastic care of me. She not only is kind and compassionate, she is on top of things medically and won't hesitate to ask questions and share information that will be helpful to you. She encourages you to share what's going on with you, she listens and is truly helpful. You know she cares and gives 100%. Dr. Ninan's office has additional patient support through nurses who are available by phone every day. They coordinate well; not only with Jessica, but with the other staff to make my care seamless. I have to give "shout outs" to the lab technicians and the front desk workers who have always been pleasant and easy to work with too.

Dr. Ninan is absolutely the best. I moved a year ago and am a long distance from Dr. Ninan but I continue to go back to him. He is compassionate and caring. He is the ultimate professional. To me he isn’t THE BEST!

I have been treated by Dr Ninan for several years. He has always been open, honest and willing to discuss any aspect of my treatment. He does not hold back and acts like he has all the time in the world to talk with you. I would recommend him to anyone who asked.

I am very impressed by Dr. Ninan's office. They run a first class operation. They call me when they're supposed to, administer treatment as needed, provide the right recommendations as necessary. I am a current patient and can't say enough great things about this practice.

Dr. Ninan is an extraordinary physician. He is knowledgeable and handles critical treatment decisions brilliantly. At the same time, he manages to connect with his patients in a kind, thoughtful, respectful manner. He actually listens to his patients, even when listening is difficult.

Dr. Ninan is the friendliest, most patient and understanding doctor I have EVER had! He is always warm and welcoming and always very concerned about your well being. I appreciate that he is not a pushy doctor, he gives his assessment and then he talks with you to find out what WE think should be done next. He treats you more like a team member than a patient. I am a sickle cell patient and I can't tell you that last time I was hospitalized and I owe that all to his care!

Have always felt comfortable talking to all personnel within this office. Dr. Ninan has always been informative and concerned for my care. He's always taken time to answer all my questions and I have never felt rushed in my appointments. His associate Jessica George is always so friendly and caring to answer all my questions. My appointments have always timely and would recommend this doctor and the whole organization for treatment and care.

I have been a patient of Virginia Cancer Specialists since fall 2008 first under Dr. Francis and later with Dr. Nina. I have found the entire practice to be professional, compassionate, and courteous. Dr. Ninan in particular is a standout. My visits for continuing follow-up for non-Hodgkins Lymphoma feel more like visiting family than a medical appointment.
