Dr. Kancharla has been my oncologist for breast cancer for nearly 3 years. He is dedicated and committed to his patients. He is extremely intelligent - up to date on all current research in his field and on the treatment modalities. He has remarkable laser-like focus when reviewing my tests and scans and can explain it in terms I understand. He never rushes - takes as much time as necessary for me to understand my process and options. He is a good listener, and has a compassionate heart. I am so grateful for his care and the way he delivers it. If you or someone you love needs an oncologist, Dr. Kanchrla is the one!

Exceptional Oncologist!!!!!! Takes the time to explain diagnosis, answer questions, explain treatment to be given, listens and takes time at you appointment, while getting treatment he pops in and checks on you,, returns phone calls to you himself no matter day or time of day. If you need an Oncologist I strongly recommend him he is he BEST!!

Wonderful...he is an amazing doctor. He takes his time, really listens to my concerns, and I feel he truly has my best interests at heart. When I call, not only does he personally respond (instead of his nurse) he does so promptly. I really appreciate his professionalism and compassion in my care...as I said, he is wonderful!

Dr Kancharla is very friendly, patient, and knowledgeable. He took the time to listen to my concerns first, addressed each one. Explained everything until I understood it, even took the time to look through 7 years of medical history for me. Being younger and chronically ill for years, it’s sometimes very hard to find a doctor to listen and take your concerns seriously and want to work side by side with you as a patient, and so far he has done so.

My mother has a lot of health issues, and has five different doctors. My honest opinion is that Dr. Kancharla is easily the best doctor. I have no medical degree, so I don't know if his choices in her care are the best or medically sound. I do know that he is attentive, and has a great 'bedside' manor. He seems to be the only one that doesn't come into the room, and try to 'wing it' with who the patient is, and why they are there, or what his history is with this patient.

We basically started out on good terms he found out that I'm not a strong candidate for chemo so he basically told me that he no longer wanted to be my Doctor & we agreed to making a ref to hospice. I meet & listened to the terms of hospice. It not for me at this point I do believe hospice is a great service but I am 48 year-young female with a 16-year-old son - I do not believe that I need a doctor that does not believe that the cancer patient would do anything to survive. I am a survivor
