Recently diganoised with esophageal cancer, I was referred to Dr. Ninan. After more tests, we found out the cancer is also in my lungs as well, Dr. Ninan has been most understanding with my decision to not take cemo or radiation. He is working with me as a patient that wants to make my own decisions for my treatment. Thank you Dr. Ninan for that. I highly recommend Dr. Ninan. He has spent valuable time explaining my situation and offered any help I may need in the future. Roy

We were late for my first visit and when we got there they took me on back and didn’t make me wait or make a new appointment. The staff is so friendly and very helpful!

Dr Ninan is an exceptional Doctor. He is very professional and personal. His nurse Cindy is one of the most wonderful nurses that I have ever met. Dr. Ninan and his staff went over and beyond ensuring that I was taken care of before, during and after my operation. I would highly recommend Doctor Ninan and his staff. Not only is he a great surgeon but a wonderful person. Thank you doctor Ninan and Cindy.
