Dr. Chamarthy treated my father 4 years ago for cancer. Her care for him was very unsatisfactory. She was not engaged in his care. When the 5 of us siblings came to her office with Dad to discuss his case and ongoing treatment - all she could do was randomly and absent mindedly flip through pages of his file - it was painfully obvious that she was not at all familiar with him, his disease or his treatment-like she had already given up on his life.
