Care Philosophy

The Physicians and staff at California Cancer Associates for Research & Excellence Inc dedicated to one goal – providing the highest quality care for our patients. Our approach is based on our belief that patients do best when they receive comprehensive care with medical specialists and support staff working together on their behalf. We believe that our patients need to have access to the latest research, technologies, treatment programs and drug therapies. We believe that support groups, psychosocial counseling and complimentary programs can improve quality of life for many patients. And we believe that to beat cancer, we must treat more than the disease itself. We must treat the whole person by being responsive to how cancer impacts all aspects of their lives.

Dr. Banerjee has been treating my husbands cancer for 5 and a half years now. He is compassionate, concerned and very wise in his treatment. My husband is doing very well and I'm sure Dr. Banerjee's plan of care and treatment is the main reason. His concern for people is above and beyond. My son has a friend who was diagnosed with cancer and I was able to text Dr. Banerjee regarding this and he responded to my text right away! (Even while on vacation). He is amazing!
