Dr. Talukdar is knowledgeable about the rare cancer I have(Waldenstrom's Macroglobulinemia) and is very frank about the fact that the numbers in the blood work are slowly rising and that there are several alternatives for treatment in my future. He keeps me encouraged while at the same time helping me face reality.

Dr. Talukdar has always taken the time to go over my progress, his plans for future treatments if required, and answers any questions that I ask him. He always makes me feel that he truly cares about me and my health. Not that I would ever want anyone I love or care for to have a reason to see Dr. T, he would be the person I would definitely recommend as their Oncologist.
