He is top of the top doctor. This guy knows his stuff and he is more compassion than the all the doctors we have taken my dad to. He spends his personal time answering our most detailed questions and never makes it sound like his time is too valuable. He is really up to speed on the latest research/post-FDA drugs that can stem the march of metastatic cancer. Bottom line, he is a top-notch oncologist with a heart. If you have to see a oncologist, go to him. But hopefully, you don't have to see a oncologist. --Fred

They don't get any better than Dr. Pal. He is a brilliant man and the most caring doctor. Unbelievable at his young age that he makes the impact he does.

Dr. Pal is truly an amazing doctor. He is brilliant, compassionate, and totally up to date in his field. Beyond that, he is very collaborative and does not hesitate to send you to other oncologists to get additional opinions. He is not the least bit egotistical, which is even more amazing when you consider how accomplished this young man is. If you have a problem that is in his domain of expertise, you would be hard pressed to do better. He practices at the City of Hope which is one of the best cancer treatment centers in the country so you have a great doctor in a great hospital.
