I’ve seen Dr Peddi for hematology related issues and not oncology related, but I cannot say enough positive things about him. He is caring, compassionate, and spent so much time with me. I felt like he was focused 100% on my care and incredibly attentive and engaged in a conversation with me and not talking at me. I hope that I don’t need to see him for oncology purposes, but if I am in that situation I wouldn’t have to worry about finding a physician. Highly recommend him...and I’m in healthcare;) His staff has always been kind, also. Lab work was a simple process and done thirty minutes before my appointment. The results were ready when he came in to speak with me. This were routine labs and not anything that required extended time for the results.

He cared for my mother who was diagnosed with Stage 3/4 Liver Cancer in 2016. This was the third time being diagnosed with Cancer. I am happy to say that my mother is a third time Cancer survivor. Dr. Peddi's diligence and love for his patients has kept my mother alive. He puts his patients first and will do things for their best interest. I highly recommend him to everyone that my path crosses that is dealing with Cancer. I love this doctor!
