I have been seeing him for over 5 years with inoperable stage 4 lung cancer. Expected to survive less than 9 months. 5 years later I am still in remission. Dr Sawhney and his staff are the best.

Dr. Sawhney is a very caring and diligent doctor. During my treatments I watch as he circles the room greeting people by name and touching base on their treatments. This is truely amazing considering the amount of patients he cares for. He always has a smile and is the best doctor I have ever had.
