What People Say About Dr. Krishna Pachipala, MD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful

Dr Pachipala is knowledgeable and caring. He explains things well and answers questions patiently. He was very gently and reassuring during a bone marrow biopsy. He has been very professional, kind and reassuring to me during each visit. His staff, without exception, has also been very nice and professional. I have never had a long wait and am always made to feel cared for. I have really appreciated the way Dr Pachipala and his staff have treated me during a stressful time in my life. I recommend him unreservedly. I myself am a nurse, so I have a different perspective on what it is like being a patient and I am very thankful for Dr Pachipala, his care and his staff.

Dr. Pachipala has been treating my husband for Renal Cell Carcinoma in his Liver, for over two years, now. His treatment protocol has prevented the spread of the cancer cells and enabled my husband to continue living, doing whatever he enjoys. We have done a lot of research and are convinced that without Dr. Pachipala, my husband would have died. We are very grateful for his compassion, intelligence, and comprehensive management of this non-curable cancer.

Dr. Pachipala is spiritual, forthright, and supportive. He treated my husband for T-cell Lymphoma. He consulted with top experts in the field of T-cell at MD Anderson. He explained the disease[how it would progress and how it would spread through his body] and the type of treatment my husband would need and his short and long-term prognosis During the two and half months my husband was in the hospital he was a source of support for me, my husband and my son; as continues to be to this day

Upon first meeting Dr. Pachipala, he spent the time to review my entire medical history and he questioned a diagnosis made nearly 15 years earlier that resulted in me being placed on daily medication. He took to the time to assess the circumstances surrounding my initial diagnosis and proposed I get retested. The results? I had been misdiagnosed all those years ago! Kudos to Dr. Pachipala for his medical knowledge and depth of care!

WHAT MAKES DR. PACHIPALA A GREAT PHYSICIAN - "The good physician treats the disease; the great physician treats the patient who has the disease." - William Osler This review does not have enough stars to give Dr. P the credit he truly deserves. Not only is he an educated and skilled MD, Dr. P is a gentle and kind soul that ALWAYS treated us like human beings first. That may not sound like much but if you are walking through cancer it can be EVERYTHING. We are eternally grateful for his care.

Dr Pachipala in my opinion is a number one. I am sure his experience and gentle care of patients is one of the main reasons I am still on this earth. He always responds to inquires to help the patient understand their disease. Dr Pachipala was the first dr my husband and I interviewed and he was patient with all our questions so needless to say he was very upfront with my condition and a treatment plan. My husband and I chose not to go through anymore interviews we found our doctor. A#1

I have been a patient of Dr. Pachipala since 2011 when I was told I had a mass in my lung. Dr. Pachipala has been my doctor through the chemo, the radiation and now for the aftercare. This doctor will listen to your complaints and concerns and treat you like you are family. You will not feel like just another number at this office. I have recommended him and will continue to for I believe he is a very large part of my Surviving cancer. I was a stage 4 bulky Hodgkin's Lymphoma patient.

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.

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.
