Dr. Rajiv V Datta has the following 2 specialties

  • 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.

Might be a great doctor, but does not stay with patient. Constantly interrupted while with me. Also had a technician perform test, and only brief discussion afterward. However, does seem concerned, courteous, competent, and knowledgeable.Real problem is that staff does not inform about various tests and costs, eventhough they know that there will be a hospital portion (since location is considered offsite hospital affiliation). They charge upfront for office copay, then you get bill for hospital copay! And very hard later to talk to anyone about the whole thing.Total time with Dr. and tech:<15 MinTotal charge to Insurance: ~$1100 to primary care insurance; ~$500 to Hosp. ins.; + $55 total copay!No wonder Healthcare is such a mess!
