“I believe being an oncologist is not only an important responsibility but a true privilege. Every patient I meet represents an opportunity for me to make a real difference and to help turn a cancer patient into a cancer survivor! This is why I strive to provide the most attentive, effective, and advanced, evidence based care possible. And I do it with heartfelt empathy, guidance, and support for my patients and their families.”

  • "I am a new patient of Dr. Patel. My first appointment was a great experience. Everything was taken care of quickly in terms of checking in and being called in for vitals and blood work. Dr. Patel takes the time to review results and make sure his patients understand what the results mean and what steps need to be taken to address any issues identified. I would highly recommend him."
