I am so grateful to Dr. Pachipala for resolving my medical issues. From my first meeting, I have found Dr. Pachipala to be extremely caring, expert & forthcoming in answering all my questions. I highly recommend him. I also appreciate his caring staff - the front desk & check-out personnel, nurses, phlebotomist, & ultrasound technician. They are all so helpful & friendly. Dr. Pachipala & his staff create a very positive, uplifting environment in which to be treated.

My wife was diagnosed with grade 4 brain cancer nearly two years ago. She underwent two brain surgeries, radiation and chemotherapy. After the initial round of combined chemotherapy and radiation her MRI indicated that the cancer had grown. Further surgery and radiation were not viable options. Dr. Pachipala recommended that my wife try another chemotherapy drug commonly used for colon cancer. Since that point in time my wife has had four MRIs that have shown no growth in her tumor.
Dr. Pachipala has been my oncologist for 4 years now and he has treated me excellent. He is very compassionate and very knowledgeable. Also, he listens when I have something to talk to him about and provides good advice when appropriate. I have a lot of confidence in his abilities and will continue to see him.

I have been a patient of Dr Pachipala for 3 years after having a blood clot in my left leg. Could not be more pleased with the care I have been given and the friendship that has developed.

I?ve been treated by Dr.Pachipala for the last 1 ? years and have no words to describe how thankful and pleased I am, with my experience throughout this period. All along this difficult period he and his staff provided an excellent treatment with utmost professional and caring attitude. He is very friendly which I find is very comforting because he always puts the patients at ease during the visits. Happy to share that I am completely cured now. I highly recommend Dr. Pachipala.

In 2009, I received the diagnosis of stage 4 small cell cancer. One could say that I received a death sentence that day. Dr Pachipala took time out of his busy schedule to counsel and advice me regarding the course of action to take in battling this enemy. After series of treatments, I am cancer free though I am battling another kind of cancer now. I believe Dr. Pachipala and his staff are kind and professional and I am truly grateful for saving my life all these years.

I would highly recommend Dr. P to others. He treated me for brain cancer and lung cancer. He was exceptionally competent, professional, and knowledgeable. Dr. P was also very open and extremely caring, taking all the time we wanted to answer our questions. In addition, all Millennium personnel were very attentive and caring.

Do not see this doctor!!! Several members of the office staff are extremely rude and are not interested in helping anyone. Dr. Pachipala has horrible bed side manner and is extremely abrasive. He honestly acts like he could care less about helping people.
Dr. Pachipala is a very kind, informative physician. He was my grandmother's oncologist. He helped my family through a very difficult time by respecting my grandmother's wishes and making her as comfortable as possible. We are very grateful for the excellent care he gave to my grandmother.
