My office visit to MdAnderson was great even though we waited over 2 hours. I really liked Dr. Iyer and was looking forward to working with him with my chemo treatment. We discussed working with my local doctor. After talking and agreeing with my local doctor Dr. Iyer changed his mind but didn't tell us. So I wasted a month and half waiting for chemo treatment. I now am having to start over looking for another doctor. It is his right to decline to be my doctor but he could have told us.

Dr. Iyer cared for me for over 6 months in hospital with Acute Myeloid Leukemia! From the moment I started my treatments I knew this man was going to take care of me! His memory is remarkable, his knowledge is incredible, but his genuine care for his patients are beyond my expectations! I am forever grateful to have been his patient. Yes, I survived AML M6 in his care without a bone marrow transplant! I think of this man and pray for him often as I know God gave his best physician to me!!
