Dr. Birhiray has been my oncologist for 5 years. I see him yearly now. He is adept in his field and very compassionate. Cancer sucks. Birhiray will help you navigate through it.

I have been a patient of Dr. Birhiray's for 9 years and feel so blessed to have him as my oncologist. Since our first meeting, before starting chemotherapy, I have felt comfortable with asking questions, sometimes the same question several times without any hesitation. When telling Dr. Birhiray of a minor ailment he listens and ask pertinent questions etc. to insure that nothing is missed or left undone. Dr. Birhiray is very empathetic and well respected in the medical community

Dr. Birhiray took the proper steps in dealing with my colon cancer according to my stage. I would recommend him bar-none. What's great about him is that he is able to walk with kings but still has the common touch!!!!!He does care about his patients. My doc for life!!!

Compassionate and EXPERT Care. He is currently treating my sister who's cancer is gone! Our family first met him in 2001 when our Mom was diagnosed with cancer. She's since passed. If I should ever have need for an Oncologist, he'll be THE One--no 2nd opinion warranted ')
