I trust dr. Nadkarni completely. She fully explained to me a way I could fully understand about my inherited anemia and showed me my blood cells after doing a bone tap.I had been to 2 other hematologist before dr, Nadkarni and they just pumped me with worthless injections. She is the best,

Dr Nadkarni is passionate about her specialty and making sure her patients get the best care possible. I have stage 4 breast cancer with metastatic boney disease and Dr Nadkarni makes me feel like I'm her only patient, which I am not! The whole oncology clinic treats everyone with dignity and respect. Stay healthy and well.
