Share with us your story of joining this speciality?
The story behind me joining Medical Oncology started in medical college when I saw my close friend’s son fighting this disease and had to suffer due to lack of expert oncologist to treat him. During my early ten years as a physician, I saw many cancer patients who were not offered relief from suffering and pain that they endured at the end of their life. Doctors refuse to handle cancer patients due to lack of knowledge and patients remain in terrible condition. At that time, I decided to do medical oncology to contribute meaningfully to give relief from pain and suffering for those in the terminal stage of illness.
What inspires you to work every day at Paras Hospitals Panchkula?
In Tricity, there are not many good health facilities including comprehensive Cancer Treatment Centres availble. This is particularly true for Panchkula and the whole of the northern part of Haryana. Cancer patients require repeated visits for treatment, which is difficult for this part of Tricity, especially in emergencies.
Paras Hospitals and Cancer Centre is the first comprehensive cancer care facility providing world-class cancer care in Panchkula with inhouse PET Scan, Radiotherapy machine to offer IGRT, IMRT 3D CRT and VMAT services under one roof.
