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!
