Specialties

Dr. Dilipkumar K Parekh has the following 1 specialty

  • Surgical Oncology

    Surgical oncologists play various roles in treating cancer. They can perform biopsies to determine if a tumor is cancerous or not. If it is, they’re trained to remove the tumor, tissue, and in some cases, all or part of an organ or bodily structure where the cancer has spread. In addition to removing cancer, they can perform any reconstructive surgeries that may be necessary.
    Many surgical oncologists specialize in certain types of cancer, such as liver, lung or breast. Don’t be afraid to ask them what they have the most experience treating. When looking for a doctor, it’s important to know that general surgeons are also qualified to perform many of the same surgeries. However, surgical oncologists have specific training in recognizing and treating cancer, which some patients prefer.

Took so long to operate that it was too late. Cancer spread to liver. Slapped on an "expiration date" and sent us on after an unnecessary stomach bypass.

This doctor recently performed surgery on my brother. The surgery was supposed to take 2 hrs it took 4 hrs. He was supposed to be in the hospital 1 week at the most. It has been 5 weeks and my brother is very ill. This doctor has terible bedside manner and we are going to get a second professional opinion :( We are also seeking legal advise and going to pursue this 110% very uncaring doctor. This will not be tolerated F-
