I found Dr. Talukdar to be intelligent, thoughtful and congenial. He discussed my issue thoroughly and with great concern. He ordered blood work with a follow-up exam to rule out concerns. I would definitely recommend him to friends and family members.

I didn't have a long time to live when I first saw Dr. T. He saw me through the worst and best of my time. I have fought this 3 times in 3 years. He has consulted with other oncologist to be sure I had the best care possible. He is always concerned with my health. I am so blessed to have him in my life at this time.

he is the most competent hematologist I have seen, and I have worked with a few in 3 other states. he took time to listen to my concerns. He also came to my appointment prepared to discuss my history. He had ideas for what to do next, included me in the decision, and I feel great about what we are doing next.
