Oncologist - Cancer
I was 11 years old when I had an opportunity to read about a biography of Dr. Albert Sweitzer, my hero! This pioneering soul had a great impact on my future career choice as a physician. ‘One who gains strengths by overcoming obstacles, possesses the only strength that can overcome adversity’ –my favorite quote from Dr. Sweitzer
My life is dedicated to my idols namely-Mother Teresa, Dr. Albert Sweitzer and last, but not least, Dr. Patch Adams. Dr. Adams is in my mind, the ideal doctor. He’s hard to emulate but not impossible.
I am nothing, just a little speck on the infinitesimal radar of life. If I could color the gray skies of one home, I will be delighted with my presence on His Earth. This is my take on life.

Patient Interaction

Best Oncologist ever. He cares so much about his patients and keeps up to date on the latest medical information. He also gives hugs when you are feeling down. He has treated me for MBC for 10 years and I am still here and he is still caring about me and all his other patents. .

Dr. Lakhanpal is a very warm, personable doctor that truly cares about each and every patient. He spends time with them and family as well as answers any questions or concerns you may have about diagnosis and treatment options to your satisfaction. If it's possible for a doctor to go above and beyond then he does. If we had any problems or questions afterward, he always got back to us about our concerns. All physicians take "the oath" but Dr. Lakhanpal truly means every word. God bless him!
