The doctor that I have to care for me is the best I have had ever concerning my CML. He is very kind and genuine and shows true concern to keep my CML in remission. I cannot possibly say enough about the doctor and how well he cares for us both me and my wife.

I have been a patient for 4 years and the staff and doctor are always professional but most important, they make me feel my well being and mental attitude is a priority. They always listen to my questions and concerns, and are able to provide information in laymen terms without making me feel embarrassed. However, if my health remains constant, I will have my last appointment next year.

Dr Karur seems very knowledgeable; however, his accent does make him hard to understand at times. He thinks I have a rare blood cancer so he wasn't familiar with all the tests I needed without doing research. I'm having to wait a week so he can do research. That is understandable, but also hard
