"I feel very fortunate to have Dr. Bhatnagar as my radiation oncologist who performed my prostate seed implant. He was very thorough in explaining the treatment to me which made me feel very comfortable with him. The procedure was fairly simple for me.
I went to the hospital in the morning and went to sleep, and then I woke up with my prostate cancer treatment completed. Then I went home a few hours later the same day. I am very pleased with the outcomes thus far. As a physician and as a patient, I would highly recommend Dr. Bhatnagar for your cancer treatment."
