Elangovan Balakrishnan, M.D.

Medical Oncologist and Hematologist


The clinical problems and complex treatment decisions in Oncology are a challenge – and I love that. At the same time, these patients need compassionate care. The ” C ” word is quite scary.
Guiding them though this tough road is not an easy job. Being an oncologist, professionally, it is very gratifying that I can help my patients go through this uphill task.
