Dr. Sharmila Roy-Chowdhury is an answer to a prayer for any patient who needs surgery for cancer! She specializes in very complex cancer surgeries and does it to perfection! She is a caring and most professional doctor! My husband was diagnosed with a rare form of cancer and needed an extremely complex surgery and we were very worried. From the first moment we met her she put us at ease.She explained the whole situation in terms we could understand and also gave us hope and confidence that he will be just fine! She did a huge, longer then 10 hour long complex surgery on my husband and saved his life! We had no complications and he is back to health all due to this wonderful surgeon! We cannot recommend her highly enough! SHE IS TRULY THE BEST! THANK YOU DR. ROY! If you or your loved one needs surgery for cancer look no further!

Dr. Roy Chowdhury saw my mother in the hospital, soon after she was diagnosed with cancer. She was very thorough and explained all the test results in terms that we could understand. She operated on my mother and took great care of her. Dr. Roy Chowdhury is a very compassionate doctor and a great surgeon. I will definitely have my family members see her, if anyone gets diagnosed with cancer.
