This was a first visit to this provider for a consult. I was referred to him by my BSWGC primary care physician. My wife and I were favorably impressed with Dr/ Surapaneni\'s knowledge of my rare sarcoma and his thoroughness in reviewing all the pertinent medical information available to him. Since this was my first encounter with an oncologist I have no other comparison that would allow me to give a 10 rating.
