    "Thanks to this amazing Dr. We have received the best care we could have ever hoped for. He is the most compassionate, sincere Dr we have come in contact with through our journey, and we couldn't thank him enough. Dr saxena is on call for us 24/7, we never felt forgotten about, left hours or days without a phone call. In fact we've never waited more than 3 minutes for Dr Saxena to call us. thank you Dr Saxena and his unbelievable coordinator Danielle for the upmost care. This Team gets 10 stars! My husband and I will be forever grateful."

    "Great doctor! I have been battling stage 4 lung cancer for seven years with Dr. Scheff and the Weill Cornell team. His office staff is responsive and very pleasant. Messages and requests for information are handled without delay. Dr. Scheff is caring and a good listener. Answers to questions are clear and honest. I always leave the office with an action plan and an understanding of my medical status. I highly recommend him."

    "Dr. Scheff and his staff worked well as a team. My appointments were well managed, and as a client I was always treated with care and consideration. Dr. Scheff never rushed me; instead he patiently addressed the hundreds of questions and fears I held about my cancer and my future treatments. He was kind and at times witty which made him very likeable. He could not have behaved more professionally, and I would have no hesitation in highly recommending him in the future."
