      My dying mother went to Dr. Makkar after having a bad experience with another Clinic Oncologist who was nasty and disrespectful to her. Dr. Makkar acted like the other MD couldn't possibly have done anything wrong, and never spoke to me about my mother's condition, although I am her only child and had medical power of attorney. Even when I called about getting my mom into hospice, he refused to speak to me and would only talk to my mother, asking only if she wanted to go to hospice.
