I've never been more impressed by a physician and his staff than I was when I was treated by Dr. Sankhala. He treats you the way you deserve to be treated, and he goes out of his way to make you well. I have always felt good talking to him and asking him questions, and he will always be receptive to your comments. He's revolutionized the field and is so innovative with how he delivers treatments. Thanks to him, I'm 2 years cancer free!!

I don't have enough words to talk about how positive my experience has been with Dr. Sankhala. First off, he says you can call him Dr. Kumar, which is his nickname, and this makes it such a less daunting experience. From the second I walked in, everyone in the office worked so hard to make sure I was comfortable. Check in was easy, there were snacks for during chemo, and there was always the attention I needed to help me feel cared for while I was getting my treatment. Great doctor!!
