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!!

From the moment he became my doctor, I was impressed with his knowledge, his attention to detail, and his amazing memory. In the time since, all of this qualities have increased. I am lucky to call him my doctor.
