What Our Patients Are Saying

Bernard
Talking about Allyson Ocean, M.D.

"Dr. Ocean is amazing. She is kind and compassionate and makes you feel like you are family. I highly recommend her and her team. I had a complicated case of colon cancer that required surgery and chemo therapy. Finding Dr. Ocean has changed the trajectory of my health. Thank you Dr. Ocean for giving me my life back and I am living it to the fullest."

Talking about Manish Shah, M.D.

"David was diagnosed with stage 4 esophageal cancer. The prognosis was devastating. We interviewed experts and received no encouragement. Dr Shah was the most caring and capable person we saw. He has proven to be a godsend. He has regulated David’s treatment with extraordinary artistry. David has been almost symptom free for the past year which is more than anyone predicted. Dr Shah listens kindly. He is thoughtful and brilliant."

Talking about Manish Shah, M.D.

"My diagnosis of esophageal cancer lead to a search for the best care possible. We consulted with NIH, Mass General, a top notch thoracic surgeon and Sloan-Kettering. That led to the selection of Dr. Manish Shah. Beyond mastering the science of oncology, especially the treatment of esophageal cancer, he cares, he listens and he communicates with openness and ease. My ongoing treatment is enhanced by consultation with his Weill Cornell colleagues."
