As of this writing, I have been a patient of Dr Sheila Vasan for approximately 6 months, for the treatment of my specific and rare bone marrow cancer. Dr Vasan is an extremely patient, compassionate and down to earth Oncologist for which I have tremendous respect. She does not mince words and informs you of what is involved in the treatment. She is engaged when answering the simplest of your questions or concerns. I would recommend Dr Vasan without hesitation, for your Oncological needs.

I saw Dr. Vasan today for a second opinion. Dr. Vasan listened to me, and she later gave me detailed description of my condition. She called the imaging place that did my second biopsy to find out my results and was proactive. I loved her. She was kind and understanding. I did not feel like another number. I felt like a human being, and I felt she cared. I highly recommend her. I also got into the office before my appointment. I did not have to wait. Great customer service. I'm very happy with her.

Dr. Vasan treated and is still treating my elderly mom for breast cancer. Dr. Vasan is wonderful. She is very knowledgeable, truly cares about her patients, and does not tire of answering questions and comforting. I feel that my mom is in great hands and am so very thankful to Dr. Vasan!

Dr. Vasan is the best oncologist anyone could ask for. She takes the time to explain AND listen to me about my treatment. There is NO ONE I'd rather see.

Dr. Vasan is a great Oncologist. She is treating my mom and is thorough and extremely competent. Of course no one ever wants to visit an Oncologist, but one must be objective and admit shes's a great doctor.
