Absolute Best Care You Will Ever Receive
Dr. Ninan was my hematologist before he also became my oncologist. I was fortunate to be familiar with this amazing doctor when it came to needed an oncologist. The choice to work with Dr. Ninan was already made. Prior experience always drives my decision making. Dr. Ninan is one of the most caring physicians I have ever had the opportunity to work with when it came to managing my health care. He cares about the total patient and is willing to come meet with patients more if needed. I am thankful for this physician.

Dr. Ninan is consistently worthy of 5 stars IMHO.
I saw Dr. Ninan a month ago. I've rated him 5 stars before several times and he is still the same knowledgeable, sharp, "with it" doctor, he was when I first met him. He exudes energy and is a very pleasant man also. He said at his last visit that he was hiring a new Nurse Practitioner whom I had the pleasure of seeing yesterday. I I would like to recommend her. The new Nurse Practitioner's name is Raminta and I would also give her 5 stars. She was quick to gain my trust because she was obviously familiar with my history that brought me there. She was empathic and explained what she though my options were and why she recommended the option she did. I found her clear and easy to understand and was 100% onboard with her reasoning and recommendations.

Pleasant and Patient
Dr. Ninan exceeded all expectations I had going into my appointment. I was prepared for a drive thru experience and a detachment per sauna. However, Dr. Ninan not only listened, but was open minded and displayed the often lost bedside manner technique. He was genuinely concerned and engaging. Yes, I highly recommend him for any such patients as myself with a Protein S blood clotting disorder. Thank you for the opportunity to comment.

My Initial Visit
My visit and initial consultation with VCS and specifically Dr. Ninan went very well and informed me greatly with respect to any cancer threat and the state of my health at that time. The entire visit was very pleasant, accommodating and I found that the staff went out their wat to serve. I was also very impressed with the manner in which Dr. Ninan was attentive to me as the patient, i.e., listening. I would strongly recommend VCS to others.

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.
