Horrible doctor

Couldn't be worse ! do yourself a big favor and look for someone else. He couldn't even wait 15minutes until I arrived to tell my husband he was terminal. I have no use for a doctor with such horrible bedside manner. how would he like to be told he was terminal with no family not a sole around. Shame on him.

I saw Dr K around 2 months ago. My experience was I found the staff to be very caring to mem and each other like a family and nurses at the hospital admire him and his bed side manner. Dr. K is very precise with proper care of his patients and their care. This was also rekayed to meby hospital staff. They adire him and his mannerism. I have had many sugeries and there has never been a more caring and compassionate Dr and staff. I felt overwhelmed with care. So try him for yourself if you dont agree, I would be greatly surprised.

Excellent Doctor?Surgeon

I was referred to Dr. K. with lung cancer. The minute my family and I met him I knew I was going to beat my cancer. Dr. K is a very compassionate person and Doctor, he explained every step clearly and asked to be sure we understood each process. Through the process he knew every member of my family and treated each as his patient. I recovered from my cancer thanks to Dr. K. and now I cancer free for 6 years, thank you Dr. Krishnadasan.

Dr. K was referred to me by my surgeon for removal of lymphnodes suspected to have cancer. If he had not been able to remove these lymphnodes which were behind my vital organs, my surgeon would have had to go through one of my vital organs to extract the lymphnode. Thank goodness there was a much less invasive way and that Dr. K. could do it. I was fine afterwards. The followup was done by my other surgeon.
