My experience with Dr. Kukunoor has been a very positive one. I've been his patient for several years now as my cancer is very slow to progress. He's very knowledgeable. He takes all the time I need & answers all my questions in layman's terms so that I fully understand. I would highly recommend Dr. Kukunoor.

Due to a variety of health issues, I have had several doctors. Dr. Kukunoor is easily my favorite doctor and I’ve been seeing him since 2013 for colon cancer. He always listens to me and patiently answers my many questions. I also like his entire team which includes reception, appointments, billing, chemo nurses, assistants, test professionals… they all are great. I feel like I’m with family when I’m there for an appointment and I insist on being with people I like.

They’re very caring and knowledgeable. Dr. Kukenoor and Mrs. Keegan are concerned for their patients. They’re trying to take care of you in the best way they know how. We feel very fortunate that we got Dr. Kukenoor and Mrs. Keegan for our cancer care. Both never seem rushed. They explain everything so we can understand all of the medical jargon.

It’s been a good experience. They physicians I’ve dealt with have been extremely knowledgeable. Dr. Kukenoor spends time with me to make a joint decision between me and him. Everybody’s been excellent. People have asked me, “Why aren’t I at Mayo?” and I say, “I don’t want to be at Mayo. I’m right where I need to be.”

I have been a patient since 2007 for breast cancer post treatment follow-up. Dr Kukunoor is an excellent physician. I have found him to be kind, smart, and knowledgeable. I have seen other oncologists in TX for brest cancer treatment. Dr Kukunoor is one of the best.

Dr. Kukunoor and his staff at Ironwood in Scottsdale are efficient, caring, and concerned for my well-being. The excellence at Ironwood is on every level from check in, radiation treatment, to scheduling, to triage when you have a question, pharmacy staff, and of course the nurses. If I knew of someone who had cancer and needed treatment I would definitely recommend them. You'll be happy with the level of care you get here.

The nurse staff is fantastic! I’m not an expert at doctors but I’d recommend him in a heartbeat to anybody including my own mother. The front desk is caring and that means a lot for me. Since I’ve got sick I’ve found that means a lot. The facilities are great; everything is clean and comfortable. It’s a great place.

All of the staff at Ironwood are really great. Erica has been wonderful. I feel well taken care of. Julie the volunteer in the chemo lab has been a little, bright ray of sunshine when I go in there.
