I find all my interactions with Dr Nagarajan too be very inspiring. His bedside manner when I first saw him for the first time I had cancer had a tremendous effect on my life. At that point, I did not want any treatment for cancer as I just thought I had had enough trouble in my life that I didn't care if I died from this cancer. He told me a story about something that had happened in his life and that had an effect on me and gave me a hope that maybe it would be better to live than die! we agreed that 3-5 radiation treatments might not be so hard and stressful to go through. He gave me the desire to live again and since then, my life, my whole self and inner strength has been so charged with love and hope, that I will never forget his physical and emotional healing miracle he did in my life!!
