I've had 3 previous oncologists in the Austin area and I feel Dr.Adapala has provided me with the most information about mybreast cancer treatment, making it understandable in everyday language. The reasons for taking my medications are clear andhe seems to genuinely care if the side effects outweigh the benefits. He is professional in every way, an excellent oncologist!

I have been very impressed with Dr. Adapala/my Oncologist since, my first scheduled appointment, & to date. The day I found out from my Pulmonologist that, I had been diagnosed with Lung Cancer ... apparently my Pulmonologist contacted Dr. Adapala to see if he would be willing to schedule for me, to see him the same day. I had been stunned/shocked being diagnosed with "2nd., Hand Lung Cancer". That when I received a phone call (On The Same Day) from Dr. Adapala's office wanting me to be able to, schedule my 1st., appointment with an "Oncologist" impressed me thoroughly. It truly made me feel with Dr. Adapala that, I was going to be in good hands. I was very impressed by Dr. Adapala when he spoke with a slight accent meaning, I could understand him completely. He continues to provide professional high quality & sensitivity ongoing. I would highly recommend him as an Oncologist. Lastly Baylor Scott & White (In Marble Falls, Tx.) is very fortunately to have Dr. Adapala within their Hospital Staff.
