His Motto

Dr. Arun firmly believes that the most important part of his job is to make the experience of the patients as stress free as possible.

He thing each and every life is precious so discuss every case in Multi Modality Tumor Board / Forum where all other medical, surgical oncologist, hemato-oncologist, pathologist, molecular and genetic oncologist come together to find best possible way to treat that case.

This discipline nature of working lead to trust building between patients family and doctor which get translated in form of satisfaction and high probability of positive results.
