My experience has been great, it is the first time I have surgery (lumpectomy) and feel happy with results. No pain at all besides the regular feeling you get when you hit yourself very hard. Even though visits have been very brief, Dr. Datta is very friendly and positive, as is his staff. Since I had a couple of questions the day after my appointment, I decided to send him a message via the website and received a phone call from his nurse right away with the answers. Overall excellent service!

Dr. Datta performed surgery on my left thyroid 4 years ago. I returned back December 2016 for a consultation on my right thyroid. Dr. Datta and his staff were welcoming, professional, and caring. Dr. Datta will perform the biopsy which is a huge relief. I am in good hands and trust his expertise and knowledge of the thyroid. The entire staff from the reception intake clerks, nurses medical students and most importantly Dr. Datta all have a smile and treat the patient with great respect.

Dr. Rajiv Datta is a compassionate surgeon and physician. Accustomed to working with him in the OR as an anesthesiologist I recognized his enormous technical skill and judgement. As his oncology patient I am also overwhelmed by his empathy for his patients. I did not expect him to personally call me to make sure I understood the results of pathology report, and provide encouragement and detailed explanations. His office runs like a clock; no dropped messages, no miscommunications.

Dr. Datta performed a double mastectomy app. 7 yrs ago and he has always been more than kind, clear with what he's explaining to you as well as caring. I would recommend him to anyone as well as Dr Ann Buhl. Staff is great as well and the office is well organized. Tara Feliciano

Even though it turns out my medical issue is nothing to be concerned about right now, Dr. Datta still entertained my endless questions with patience and a smile. I really appreciated that. He also is very calming.
