“I have advanced prostate cancer that has metastasized to my bones. My condition is terminal. Therefore, I was referred by my oncologist to Houston Metro Cancer Center to work with Dr. Sachin Patil in a clinical study he has underway to offer patients a new clinical therapy from Bayer called Xofigo®. Xofigo is designed to slow down progression of the disease. Thus far, I have had four of six treatments. Something is working as I mowed my lawn today and I am pain-free! Working with Dr. Patil is unbelievable. He took so much time with my wife and I up front to explain the treatment plan. He is fabulous, the staff is fabulous, and the Cancer Center is excellent. Our hope with Xofigo is that the treatment will slow the progression of the disease enough so we can visit our grandkids more, and enable us to pursue our passion for sailing. We have a 36-foot sailboat moored in Galveston Bay, and we also plan to continue fly-and-sail trips to destinations in the Caribbean – and continue our travels in Europe. We have to be optimistic!”

“I am a breast cancer patient.  It was very easy to schedule my appointments. As I live 50 miles from your treatment center, it was very important that they accommodated my schedule.  I’m an R.N. and I’ve never had as comprehensive an assessment by an oncologist as I had with Dr. Patil. He spent an extended amount of time with me and my husband during my assessment. There was a great deal of work put into designing my treatment program before any treatment started. Dr. Patil is the most meticulous and caring doctor I’ve ever met. And he called me in between my appointments to check on me and to see how I was doing, and to see if I needed anything. He has always looked at me as a whole person – not just as a person with a cancer. I’ve heard that he does this with all of his patients. When I told Dr. Patil that I was going to one of the largest churches in Houston for some spiritual reading literature, he suggested that I bring back some extras to share with other patients. I just adore him. Dr. Patil has always gone above and beyond his responsibility as a treatment provider to take care of me.”

                                                                                                                              - S.D.

“I feel very fortunate to have been referred to Dr. Patil by oncologist Dr. Alexander Wong. I am a colorectal patient. I did not know how radiation treatments are handled.  Dr. Patil took considerable time – on a late Friday afternoon – going over the procedure from beginning to end, and also what to expect in the next several months with follow-up visits. I never felt rushed and don't remember ever having to wait to get in to see him or to get my treatment. When reporting a negative side effect, Dr. Patil responded immediately. He examined the wound areas and prescribed medication and worked with the pharmacy (CVS) to make sure I received the prescription medication quickly. The technicians (at HMCC) also were great!  Each one respected me and addressed all of my concerns along the way. I hope to be able to refer future friends and acquaintances to Dr. Patil and his HMU staff whenever and wherever the situation permits.”

                                                                                                                              - T.N.



“When the two of us met Dr. (John) Van, we were immediately struck by his excellent bedside manner.  It did not take long for us to realize that we were his prime concern for however long the consultation took.  He answered all of our questions, explained the nature of the treatment and follow-up, and gave us hope. ”

                                                                                                                             - R.T.


“We are still on this journey and healing is a process. Dr. Van continues to be compassionate and understanding, and we have claimed a victory.”                                             

                                                                                                                             - B.T.

“I am a breast cancer patient.  My physician is Dr. (Sachin) Patil. His bedside manner is excellent.  I’ve never experienced a doctor who is as compassionate, dedicated, and truly caring about his patients. He makes me feel like I’m his only patient and he is always accessible whenever you need him. I can’t say enough good things about him.“

                                                                                                                           - B.M.

“When we had the pleasure of meeting  Dr. (Sachin) Patil, we were most impressed with his approach and kindness. We also had worked earlier with Dr. Patil when he was on-call. He responded immediately to our calls. He prescribed medication and worked with the pharmacy so we received the medication quickly.”

                                                                                                                            - R.T.

“Fortunately for me, after any time spent with Dr. Van or Dr. Patil, I came away feeling more comfortable and with a much better understanding of the few questions I had. Both took the time to explain everything in ‘lay’ terms and never rushed me, or made me feel that my questions were unimportant.”

                                                                                                                            - B.L.

“Both Dr. Patil and Dr. Van never rush with the patient, and they are very respectful and sensitive to the patient and his wife. They make a wonderful team and we are blessed and fortunate to have them on our team.”                                                                                                        - B.T.

“Thank you for making my experience with radiation treatment as comfortable as it could be.”

                                                                                                                              - J.R.

“Special kudos to the financial office, which worked through some insurance issues with us in a kind and generous way.”

                                                                                                                                    - R.T.

“The staff made what could have been an unpleasant experience almost enjoyable – one that I actually looked forward to. The technicians were especially great folks!”

                                                                                                                            - N.N.

“The entire radiation team is to be commended for their expertise, sense of humor, and supportive nature. Each one respected us and addressed all our concerns along the way.”

                                                                                                                            - B.T.

“At the end of the day, I couldn’t be more pleased with the care I received and comfort of knowing that total recovery and long-term well-being was the uppermost goal of these professionals.”
