I couldn’t not ask for a more thorough, highly competent Dr. than Dr. Chatiwala. She is the BEST. While brilliant in her field,she is beyond a caring Dr. with a terrific bedside manner. The entire office are all very friendly~ always a smile and a warm Hello. They do not see the easiest of conditions in their patients, and yet remain calm, and understanding to the stresses of their patients and their patients caregivers. Feel very fortunate we have such a Top-Doc here right here in Sparta.

Dr Chatiwala started out to be my hematologist and then became my oncologist. After my cancer was diagnosed and I started my first treatment I was away on vacation and I was as sick as a dog, Being in another state with friends, she would take all the phone calls and she would call and check on me and even after I got home she would check on me. I feel Dr Chatiwala truly cares about her patients. I personally feel the whole office is wonderful, friendly,caring, and very efficient. When you need to go to an oncology office, such as this, you’re scared and you feel alone and have so many questions to ask. You need to feel safe and you want to feel your doctor genuinely cares, and Dr Chatiwala does. The bottom line, my life is in their hands and so I trust them with my life.

Dr. Chatiwala diagnosed my step-father with liver cancer at Newton Hospital. We actually never met her face-to-face. She called my mother late at night and they spoke on the phone only. Very little information was given. Very poor communication. She has a heavy accent and talks fast. It was hard for my mother to understand her. She had to ask her to repeat what she was saying. Communication was very rushed. Chatiwala tried to put a drain in for the bile duct - unsuccessful. She then referred to a specialist in Morristown who said the cancer was so advanced he would not have even tried that. We never received the results of the full body cavity MRI to understand whether the cancer had spread. We were never told what stage cancer it was. He died a week later. From the reviews, I am guess that she is better in person but dealing with her via phone was very difficult and stressful.

Very courteous and professional office personnel. Nurse was friendly, professional, and thorough in a complete review of case history, medications, and family history. Dr. Chatiwala was extremely patient and thorough in explaining the thought processes that had been explored and utilized during the course of my father's recent hospitalization. A thorough explanation of treatment plan , and options, moving forward was also provided. Left the office feeling very comfortable.

I have never had more pleasant doctor visits than those with Dr. Chatiwala, her staff, including nurse Laurie, front desk receptionist Bridgette, technicians and all ladies that keep you going during long chemo sessions. I leave my appointments with complete confidence about my illness and treatments. My highest of praises go to this entire group of care givers. I highly recommend Dr. Chatiwala, her team and RCCA in Sparta.

Was told to come in 30 minutes prior to my appt time, which I did. Staff was rude and short at check in. Waited for 45 minutes before I was called back for my appt, and when I was I basically had a thermometer shoved in mouth, blood pressure cuff thrown on and the staff member took out a needle and started to swab my finger all WITHOUT saying a word to me!!! I stopped her and asked what she was doing and I got an attitude with her response. Check out was NO better!!! First impression NOT GOOD

Dr. Chatiwala is a warm and caring doctor. She takes the time to explain things, listens to your concerns and makes you feel as if you are her only patient. I have been seeing her for an ongoing issue for over a year and feel as if she has become more than a doctor, also a friend. She and the staff are incomparable and I would highly recommend them, in fact, have already done so.

I just recently started going to The Sparta Cancer Center. The office staff was very helpful and explained everything. Appointments were easy to make and the paperwork was typical. Dr Chatiwala is a very personable Doctor who has a wonderful and open bedside manner in the office. She was thorough and even brought up Dr appointments that would be important due to being on tamoxifan. She took the time to explain and understand me as a person. Highly recommend!

My mother was diagnosed with cancer last year. Dr. Chatiwala and Laurie her nurse are amazing. I am a healthcare professional with over 30 years experience working with physicians. Dr. C is perhaps one of the best physicans I have ever worked with. She is caring and compassionate and is always answers my technical questions in a way my mother can understand. She is extremely thorough and up to date on all current treatment regimens. There is no need to go out of Sussex County for treatment
