Care Philosophy

In the age of the Internet where cancer patients want to be involved in shared decision-making for their cancer care, they are exposed to information overload from a variety of sources - many unreliable. At every new patient visit I give my patients a summary sheet detailing diagnosis, treatment options, goals of therapy, and risks and benefits of therapy. Patients should be partners in their care and are encouraged to bring all of their questions (and questions from loved ones) to every visit.Read more

Dr. Khatcheressian treatment my husband until he suffered an extravasation during one of his treatments. He was so self-absorbed, he couldn't be bothered to even see my husband when the event occurred. When we called him after going home, his answer to the amount of pain my husband was in was dismissive at best. The extravasation caused my husband to be on potent narcotic medications for the last year and a half of his life.

Great first visit. Each succeeding visit he seemed rushed and didn't want to answer my questions. He brushed them off as though he had decided what was best for me but wasn't willing to take time to understand my concerns.
