I believe that patients play a vital role in deciding on the type of treatment they want to receive. An important goal of my practice thus, is to educate and inform them about the latest therapy options including the clinical trials.

The whole time I was at the Cancer Center, I was looking at all the other people there, waiting to get their lab work done, while a lot of these patients looking so frail and ill. I felt so sorry for them all. Yet every medical staff person seemed so caring for everyone. Even me. I felt everyone (receptionist; lab technicians; doctors' assistants; nurses; and doctors) was exceptional!

Dr. Dhakal is an expert in his field and I appreciate that he knows I am a Medical Technologist and converses with me appropriately. He knows I am interested in knowing everything I can about my cancer and he is always willing to answer all my questions. Also, as soon as the nurse was finished he comes into the room. No waiting ever. I wish the lab was a little faster when servicing patients. I usually end up waiting 25-30 minutes before my draw. The waiting room was not full at the time I arrrived.

when issues arose with diarrhea, he recommended further testing with a gastroenterologist. I do respect a doctor who recognizes limitations and is not afraid to make referrals.

Dr. Dhakal takes time to answer questions and explain my conditions to me in a way that I can understand.

Dr. spent sufficient time with me. He did not exude the feeling that he was in a hurry. Very excellent bed time manners. I really enjoy visiting him although it meant 6 different shots to draw blood. He has my life in his hands and he makes me feel very secure with this arrangement. HE deserves and atta boy.

dr extremely knowledgeable in his field of oncology. wants make sure I understand my test results. caring man. not starchy
May 9, 2019
I feel the Dr. is very knowledgeable and to this point I trust his judgement. I do feel sometimes that minimal time has been spent evaluating my current condition which seems to lead to mixed/different messages each visit with regards to future plans and future treatment plans. It seems the entire clinic seems to be a bit overwhelmed at times as I have to routinely send multiple message reminders of labs/appointments/medication that have not been ordered. I completely understand that I am not the only patient and that they serve many patients, many that are currently worse off than me, But I feel that if I'm not completely on top of every aspect of my scheduling/medication/etc that things may slip through the cracks. I worry about happens if my health deteriorates in the future and I'm unable to be so vigilant with being on top of things. That all being said I feel it is a trustworthy, knowledge & caring staff that is doing the best they can with a large patient load. I have been dealt a unfavorable diagnosis at an age that I have a young family counting on me to stay in their lives. Understandably I just want to make sure that my medical team as well as myself don't miss a step and do everything possible to keep me in my family's lives as long as possible. I do feel I'm at the right place for that.

In for diagnosis of a possible blood disorder so with a hematologist/oncologist. Such an excellent specialist! Put my mind at ease giving me the data needed accurately. So thorough 16 lab tests! Very personable; yet to the point. Went home armed with new knowledge; not afraid to face the future. Thank you Froedtert!
