    I was treated for cancer by Dr. Rudrapatna. I trusted him and his advice, and he is very good at explaining the different types of cancers in lay terms and also how the different treatments are used to target the specific type of cancer. He always made time for questions, and is very personable and caring. He worked well with the enter team that treated me from surgeon to navigator nurse and oncology nurses. Ames is fortunate to have this knowledgeable oncologist. The nurses also said he is very good at his specialty, and who knows better than the nurses who do direct patient care every day.

    After receiving a Stage 4 diagnosis, my father was treated by Dr. Rudrapatna. My sister and I met and spoke with Dr. Rudrapatna on several occasions, and my parents spent a great deal of time with him. We all found him to be very friendly, understanding, patient, and informative. Most important to me was his obvious compassion and true concern for my Dad as an individual, and the emotional support he provided to Dad along with the medical attention. Our family felt we were in very capable hands. My father recently lost his year long-battle, and in the final days, Dr. Rudrapatna's showed extreme kindness and concern not only for my Dad, his patient, but for the entire family. I cannot speak highly enough of this fine doctor, to whom our family owes a debt of gratitude for all of his efforts.

    Worse cancer doctor there is. He is short with you and ABSOLUTELY doesn't listen to anything you have to say. DEFINITELY WOULD NOT RECOMMEND HIM TO ANYONE. Bliss Cancer Center should get rid of him
