At the first appointment, well over three years ago, Dr. Kukunoor told me he was sort of a quarterback who directed his team as to my treatment. Well, I am still here, alive and well. He is an intelligent, careful doctor and a decent man. He was always ready to answer questions, even when he was short on time. His sense of humor and confidence also helped me get through the ordeal. I would highly recommend him.

When you hear the words “you have breast cancer” you want to know you will receive the best possible care. I heard those words and I have had that care. Through each stage of diagnosis and treatment, my medical onocologist, Dr. Rajesh Kukunoor, coordinating with my primary care doctor and the rest of my Ironwood Cancer & Research Centers’ oncology team, has provided knowledgeable, professional, and compassionate care. Dr, Kukunoor tailored my treatment plan to meet my specific needs thoroughly explaining my treatment options at each step of this continuing journey. I highly recommend Dr. Kukunoor for your cancer treatment and ongoing preventative care.

In 2009, a tumor was discovered on my liver. That is when I met Dr Kukunoor. He thoroughly explained everything, listened to my concerns and fears, gave me positive, caring support throughout treatment and in the following years. I saw him recently for my 10 year cancer free appointment! He rejoiced with me. I can't say enough great things about this wonderful, caring doctor. Thank you, Dr Kukunoor!

Dr. Kukunoor has been my dad's Cancer Dr. for over 15 years or so. Dr. K helped my dad beat Colon Cancer and then Dr. K helped him beat Prostate Cancer and just recently, Dr. K helped him beat a rare Melanoma Cancer under his thumb. Dr. K knows what he is doing and has the greatest bedside manner. He will spend time with you answering your questions and even repeating himself without irritation or annoyance. As much as I hope we never see him again, I know that if we ever need a Cancer doctor I know who to call.

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.”

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.
