I would rate the care that I received during my entire chemotherapy as outstanding!!! Dr. Chaulagain is very warm and friendly and caring and respectful. He and the nurses treated me with kindness and caring every step of the treatment. Dr. Chaulagain clearly explains what will happen and is a great listener to any questions and problems I had with reaction to chemo. He made very helpful consult referrals to address any discomfort I experienced. Everything he told me would happen went just as he described. It gave me confidence that the treatment would be tolerable and would succeed. When i has a question through My Chart I got a response from either Dr. Chaulagain or the nurses in an appropriate and timely manner. He and the nurses are affable and very supportive. My experience was among the best level of care I have ever had. the positive and confident attitude of everyone I encountered in the lab, the exam room and in the infusion area would be uplifting for anyone battling cancer. Dr Chaulagain listened carefully to the things I told him with the highest degree of professionalism and caring. The confidence and positive attitude he showed me was also shown by everyone I encountered in hematology/oncology every step of the way.
